Diyarbakır Stadi – design description
The new stadium holding 33,000 people is to be built within 2014-2015, with the tender for its construction to begin in January 2014. The new arena is to replace the outdated Ataturk stadium, standing in the centre for over 50 years.
The stands are to be incorporated into a very unusual outer form with an octagonal star’s blueprint. Anchor tenancy is to be taken by Diyarbakirspor, the Super League club traditionally associated with Kurdish community.
New stadium: Fortress, watermelon, 8-arm star
No, these aren't random words that popped to our mind. They're all what inspired the unorthodox stadium in Diyarbakir, eastern Turkey. It's not as odd as it sounds but surely has no comparison with any stadium we've seen.
New designs: Four more from Turkey
Within just three days three construction tenders are to be launched in January. New stadium in Izmir on Jan 28, another one for Izmir on 29 and new stadium for Diyarbakir on January 30. The plan for every major city to have new stadiums is progressing impressively!
