It took a while to get through foundations, but now work is progressing significantly. First steps of the end stands are already in place in Be’er sheva, where one of Israel’s more characteristic stadiums is being built.
Construction works began officially in 2011, but it wasn’t until late 2012, that the stadium went through foundation works. Now construction took a significant boost with ground level being done at almost all sides, while end zones already received their lowest steps.
This is the very first stadium by GAB Architects that has all side/and stands from the start, but at the same time has no corner sections.
Despite English-alike layout, it also presents some of what GAB has everyone used to – light monumental walls in the corners. This gives the stadium some weight as fronts of each stand are very light, with facades allowing air to get inside and out.
