Nowadays, a football stadium is an absolute statement structure. This one has just been completed in the city of Barysaw, Belarus.
The stadium, which looks like a UFO, was created by OFIS. For this design, special attention was paid to preserving as much of the natural landscape as possible, meaning that both the approach to the building and the parking lot are surrounded by forest.
Along with 13,000 seats, the stadium offers an additional 3,000 m² of space for shops, offices, bars and toilets. In terms of its UEFA ranking, it stands among other 4-star facilities.
The stadium’s frame features a textile exterior cover which is characterized by asymmetrical openings providing views to both the inside and outside. In the forest location, these “splotches” call to mind the colouring of a fire salamander.
