Müngersdorfer Stadium, Cologne
The design for the rebuilding of the Müngersdorfer Stadium for the 1st FC Cologne football club integrates the listed part of the existing building into a new, modern football arena.
The design is characterised by its basic key shape, which allows all spectators the optimum view of events on the pitch. The terraces and seats are sheltered by a tensioned membrane roof structure. The translucent material ensures ideal lighting conditions during the day, without casting any shadow on to the field of play. At night the arena appears to glow through the slightly upwardly convex roof structure.
