Project Description

A pioneering sports venue project and the first fully demountable, transportable, and reusable stadium of its kind. The innovative concept was based on a simple principle: to create a temporary venue that is fully fabricated off-site, transported and installed on site, that can then be easily demounted after the event to be completely re-installed in another location or repurposed into many small stadia at different locations. To achieve this, each individual component of the stadium can be configured to a variety of other possible usage options.

Judge’s comments

The impressive conception and execution of a large fully demountable, transportable, and reusable stadium with capacity of 40, 000. 

To achieve this, the principles of modular construction are implemented in a highly repetitive grid of identical structural frames supporting standardised components: bleachers, concourse slabs and modules carrying containers pre-equipped with all required functions. 

All the elements of the stadium’s structure fit inside standard shipping containers and can be packed and transported as a complete system for the next event. 

The stadium demonstrates modular construction at an immense scale and is a milestone within the development of adaptable and practical sports venues.
