Description: Stadion Miejski w Białymstoku
Design by APA Kuryłowicz and Associates was chosen for Białystok’s new 22,400-seater stadium back in 2007. It envisaged two tiers of seating encircling the pitch, fully covered with the steel-concrete roof supports creating an impressive external form.
During preparations of the final project documentation supporters of Jagiellonia were consulted on the design and architects agreed on their proposition to merge both tiers behind goals in order to enhance support which is easier to coordinate on single tiers.
As part of cutting costs the Bialystok municipality decided not to build underground parking around the stadium that was initially designed to save way for recreational space and access routes to the ground.
