Arup has unveiled a proposal to construct a new stadium for the Italian football club A.C. Milan in a central area of Milan. If built, the venue would integrate a “modern stage” for the team’s home matches with a hotel, sports college, restaurants, children’s playground and public open space.
“The project has been developed with a fully holistic and integrated approach where all the design components have been carefully balanced around the spectator’s experience,” stated Arup in a press release.
“Some of these innovative components include sight-lines analyzed and designed for every seat and developed by an Arup parametric tool that guarantees the best possible view from every location in the stadium; high-tech solutions that will enhance the spectators’ experience before, during and after the matches and special VIP facilities with lounges and spaces with a direct view on the mixed-zone and on the route from the athletes’ changing rooms to the pitch.
“As part of the sustainability improvements, the stadium will include a moveable roof to mitigate noise in the surroundings and special attention will be dedicated to the social and environmental needs of the users.”
