GMT Mysłowice Win Competition to Design Poland's Stadion Ruch Chorzów

The design for a new stadium for Ruch Chorzów, one of Poland's largest football clubs, has been unveiled. The winning proposal, designed by GMT Mysłowice, will have a capacity for 12,000 seats and, although described as not being "the most impressive [design] overall," has been selected for its simple, clean form and "value for money." With ruch meaning 'movement' or 'motion' in Polish, the concept for the design has hinged around "giving passers-by a different perspective from every possible angle as they move along the stadium."
