Description: Stadion Nizhny Novgorod
Final concept of the Nizhny Novgorod retains the location set in 2012, in western district of Strelka, picturesquely set along Volga, but in need of revitalization before the 2018 World Cup.
Visually, however, the plan saw a lot of changes since the adoption of this location in 2012. Concrete outer concrete colonnade will be contrasted with visually lightweight whirlpool-shaped glass wrap. Similarly to the wrap, access routes to the stadium are also to be spirally encircling the entire venue.
Seating layout has been divided into two tiers – lower one forming a sunken bowl of modest size and upper, much larger and more dynamic with its 'la ola' motive. The upper tier is to be cut along the pitch, leaving room for two levels of skyboxes.
The entire project was set at nearly 17 billion in late 2014, while Stroytransgaz was selected to deliver the stadium. Within 36 months (ending half a year before the 2018 World Cup) the construction giant is expected to finish the project.
Russia 2018: Nizhny Novgorod needs to speed up, more workers
With less than a year left before the Russian World Cup, authorities in Nizhny Novgorod decided to employ 500 more workers at the stadium construction site. Otherwise it might be late or of insufficient quality.
