Sports Architect HKS Wins Design Jobs For Copenhagen Arena, Russia Stadium
Published June 18, 2012
READY FOR WORLD CUP: In Russia, HKS, in conjunction with Mosproject-4, a local design institute, won the bid to design a new 50,000-seat World Cup stadium in Krasdonar. The $300M facility, to be built in a community near the Black Sea, will be used by two Russian soccer teams after the 2018 international competition is over, Hyett said. Elsewhere, HKS has been shortlisted to design a 70,000-seat stadium in Paris which will serve as France’s national rugby facility. The country is a stronghold in rugby having made the World Cup finals three times in the last 20 years. The HKS design calls for an open room and a movable pitch. HKS’ design partner for that project is local firm Arte Charpentier. Populous and Foster and Partners are the two other finalists in a design competition. Hyett said that the winner should be selected this fall.
