Olympic Stadium

Buro Sant en Co: In the new design, the site of the Olympic Stadium becomes an urban field. An extensive space that can be used for large scale events and everyday uses. The “urban field” is defined by its edges: the buildings along the existing Stadium square on the east side, the Olympic quarter on the north side and smaller buildings on the other edges. The Olympic stadium and the Citroën Buildings are objects that are placed in the urban field. Around the square a frame of trees and benches create a pleasant climate. The square becomes the ‘red carpet’ that forms entrance to the Olympic Stadium. The character of the design reflects the monumentality of the Olympic Stadium and makes it into an icon for city.
