Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux, Bordeaux (under construction)

Herzog & de Meuron 


Located in the quarter of Bordeaux-Lac to the north of Bordeaux, the new stadium – which will become the home of the FC Girondins – seats a maximum of 42.000 spectators, with a football pitch of 68 x 105 meters that can be extended for rugby games, concerts and other shows. The project reinterprets the three fundamental elements of a stadium: the bowl, the concourse, transitional element between the field and the surroundings, and the overall appearance. These three criteria are adapted to the specific conditions of the site, and combined to achieve functionality and a strong identity. The stadium’s inauguration is in May 2015, and it will host five Euro 2016 matches.
