Refurbishment of Romelio Martínez Stadium, Barranquilla

El equipo de Mazzanti 


The Bogotá firm of Giancarlo Mazzanti renovated and enlarged this 1935 stadium in Baranquilla, the capital of Colombia's Atlántico Department. The objective was to reorient the facilities in compliance with standards set by the 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games, while fitting it out for other events as well, including carnivals. To address the requirements and diversity of events to be held, the stands slope at varying angles and are fragmented in groups, partly opening up to the exterior. The layout combines repetitive, regular elements with bands harboring a variety of uses, such as stores, restaurants, and landscaped zones. El Equipo Mazzanti Alejandro Arango
