El Monumental – design description
The vision was commissioned by River Plate in 2010 in order to see the current stadium updated, but also retain its character at the same time. Upper tiers are to be left with only new entrance gates and staircases, while lower sections are to be transformed for football-specific layout instead of the current multi-use mode.
Along with seating revamp a new roof was envisaged over all spectators, with external cladding covering the concrete structure.
Around the stadium office/commercial developments were planned along new training facilities and indoor halls.
What if - unfulfilled stadium promises
What if? Although this question often leads to nowhere, in the case of stadiums it is quite reasonable. So take a trip with us into stadium neverland, where we find the facilities that have failed to see the light of day.
