Estadio BBVA Bancomer – design description

Despite being designed back in 2008 by Mexican-American HOK Sport  team (later divided into Populous and VFO Arquitectos), the project only received its green light in August 2011, which allowed for preparatory works to be done in October of that year.

The stadium will have a dynamic shape, sloping lower towards the south. Architects said it would make a batter relation to the nearby mountains, which – by the way – fans will be able to view thanks to the declinatory shape. Not only that, the pitch will also receive more sunlight with that move.

Despite being surrounded by parking spaces, the stadium should give an impression of green space with plants supposed to cover a third of the entire plot. Trees between parking sections, grass in the bays, water collecting system and efficient energy use should make this venue exemplary not only for many other Mexican stadia, but also those in other countries.
