Orlando City Stadium – design description
The new stadium in Orlando is to be financed partly with public money, most notably from additional local tax. It's part of the effort by Orlando City SC to join the MLS, which requires football-specific stadiums of 18,000-25,000 from its members.
The ground designed by Woods Bagot architects is on one hand simple, light and elegant (with membranes and louvres covering it) and on the other – robust and intimidating with enhanced acoustics. Architects name English football stadiums as the inspiration.
