Description: Stadion Samara
The GMP Architekten concept sees double-tiered stands covered with large, 80-meter high dome. Covered with translucent panels the stadium should resemble a gemstone.
Audience should see skyboxes on both sides of the pitch, on two floors. Altogether this gives 1,200 luxurious seats, almost double the FIFA expectations.
