• Miejski Stadium, Breslau

Breslau’s city sports arena (“Stadion Miejski“), was one of the venues for the UEFA 2012 European Football Championships. The centrepiece of Breslau’s new sports and recreation complex, it is also a UEFA Category 4 (elite) stadium.

 

With its flowing, sculpted form, this 39m high stadium sits on a slightly raised base that houses all the central facilities and a car park. Visitors enter the stadium via a wide, upward sloping ramp surrounded by a dynamic, opaque exterior skin. A fine Teflon mesh, stretched over five rings inclined at different angles, encases the massive stadium bowl, making a strong statement without detracting from the appeal of the promenade and single-tier stand. The outer skin also serves as a screen for a richly coloured lightshow thanks to the bespoke lighting system.
