Description: Tsentralnyj Stadion

Reconstruction of the Yekaterinburg stadium began as one of the last 2018 World Cup projects. Its delay was caused partly by prolonging debate about how the historical facades should be preserved and incorporated into a new stadium.

Eventually it wasn’t until early 2015 that demolition of the old stands and cover began. By November none of the concrete structure remained, while the protected outer walls were became surrounded by 6 tall cranes.

New stands with no running track will be incorporated into the circular blueprint of the stadium. Due to its limited size (57,000 square meters) the stadium had to be designed rather tall, while additional tubular sections are to be temporarily added for the duration of FIFA World Cup outside the ground. After the tournaments they could be removed, reducing capacity by up to 12,000 seats.

From the outside the old yellow walls will be combined with grey mesh. Its neutral colour will be possible to change at night with dynamic illumination. On top of the whole building a large circular canopy will be hanged, hovering 45.5m above the field.
