Description: Olympiastadion

One of the main goals with this Project is to respect and largely retain the historical form created in 1938. It will see new seats and roof expansion to cover all sections, but not change the stadium’s proportions or skyline.

Vast redevelopment is to happen inside with new functions and improved ones of the existing infrastructure being planned. With the wish for surroundings not to be changed much, no new building will be erected around the stadium, which means some facilities will have to go underground, forming a welcoming green leisure complex on the surface and possibly buzzing event centre underneath.

The extent of changes and constraints of the existing stadium cause its budget to be a very significant one, standing at some €240 million ($325m).
