Estadio de Los Ángeles – design description
Though Los Angeles already has a main municipal stadium, it's most known for great athletics running track and hardly meets football demand. That's why in 2015 decision was made to build a new one in a different location. Initially for 12,500 people, then downsized slightly to 10,000.
What's very rare around the world, residents were given the option to choose between two different designs of the stadium, each by the same architectural office. They were both similar in terms of aesthetics and envisioned wood as main cladding material (fitting the province of Biobio known for lumber), though each had its unique qualities. This one was selected in vote attended by several thousand people.
The new stadium won't be build in the city proper, rather in its western outskirt, near the Pata de Gallina village. It will be accessible from two main streets, which is why turnstiles and access routes are only planned in the north and south.
Beside the stadium a significant portion of public green and parking areas are planned, altogether covering the space of 14 hectares.
