DESCRIPTION
 
gmp von Gerkan Marg und Partner Warsaw National Stadium PolandIn 2012, Poland and Ukraine will be hosting the UEFA European Football Championship.

gmp von Gerkan Marg und Partner Warsaw National Stadium PolandFor the occasion, a new national stadium will be built in Warsaw on the existing but crumbling rubble-built Dziesieciolecia Stadium abandoned for sports uses in 1988. The stadium is in Skaryszewski Park east of the city center on the bank of the Vistula, and will form the heart of a new sports park. The construction of the stadium is divided systematically into two. The stand consists of prefabricated concrete parts. Above this is a steel wire net roof with a textile membrane hung on freestanding steel supports with inclined tie rods. The interior roof consists of a mobile membrane sail that folds together above the pitch. The video cube with four screens giving optimal sightlines from all seats is also in the middle of the pitch. The top tier is accessed via twelve archshaped, single-flight staircases. The exterior façade consists of anodized expanded metal that provides another transparent envelope for the actual thermal shell of the interior areas and access steps. The stadium with its exterior façade in the national colors of Poland will stand out in the park as a landmark visible from afar.
gmp von Gerkan Marg und Partner National Stadium Warsaw Euro2012The stadium has been designed as a multifunctional events centre and, with its approx. 20,000 sqm of lettable office and conference facilities, comprises a comparatively high proportion of floor space which can be used independently of the stadium operation. These spaces are available for all types of events and include the necessary support facilities.

gmp von Gerkan Marg und Partner National Stadium Warsaw Euro2012The stadium’s construction consists of two succinct parts – the grandstand built of pre-fabricated concrete components and the steel wire net roof with a textile membrane suspended from freestanding steel supports with inclined tie rods above this. The interior roof consists of a retractable membrane sail which folds together above the centre of the pitch. This is also where the four-screen “video cube” is installed so as to provide an optimum view from all seats. The top tier is accessed via 12 arch-shaped, single-flight staircases.

The exterior façade consists of anodized expanded metal that provides another envelope for the actual thermal shell of the interior areas and access steps. The panels with their red and bright silver colour scheme appear either closed or transparent, depending on the light angle, and from a distance evoke the image of an artistic composition in white and red, the country’s national colours.
