Renowned architectural firm Foster + Partners is gearing up to revamp Barcelona's Camp Nou football field where FC Barcelona rules the turf. Based on the initial concepts of Francesc Mitjans, the new Camp Nou will feature a glittering facade studded with colored polycarbonate and glass panels, creating a scaly skin of sorts, serving to shade, shelter, provide natural ventilation, and make a strong visual statement. The facade will transform from day to night and appear unique on match days as opposed to non-match days. Projection lighting elements will be integrated into the paneled side enclosure to provide low-key, ambient effects to vibrant and active displays. The paneled exterior will carry over across the roof, supported by a two-way pre-stressed cable net system, where color density will disperse on the interior to appear as if it's blending into the sky.
After 50 years of wonderful memories, the Camp Nou is looking to the future with optimism. The world-famous firm of architects, Foster + Partners, is to undertake the remodelling of the stadium based on the initial concepts of Francesc Mitjans. The renovated stadium will stand as a piece of architecture in its own right and is certain to become an international architectural reference point for the 21st century. According to information released today, the whole building will be contained in a clearly defined space, with a unified external appearance. The additional spaces and facilities will be completely integrated, both functionally and architecturally.
When the remodelling work is completed, visitors will enjoy a renovated stadium with the unique and distinctive image of FC Barcelona, and which will be completely integrated into the city's architectural heritage. Seen from the street, it will be a very modern stadium, as it will when seen from inside, with spacious service areas and escalators that will take the spectators to the higher levels.
