The exterior looks quite interesting at first sight. Do you have some bigger pics?

Do you know why this stand was built bevelled?


Was there not enough space for a rectangular stand?

No, cause there is a railway on the side :












The Future Bollaert looks impressive but I'm very disapointed it's only 50.000 and not 56.000 as Axelferis previously said...

Vilak--> i'm sorry buddy but it was what martel president annouced

And it is said first that 2010 will see 50000 seats capacity
2012-> they will construct the retractable roof !!!

You can see on the sid of the stadium Hotels, mall, and underground a great parking!

I'm disapointed about caacity but perhaps the costs??

If you notice they remake two tribunes! Perhaps if the remade a third kop they could upgrade a little more capacity?

i think they do like in england: Upgrade in function of sold out seats (like manchester,Newcastle)

interview in french from the architect (the same that lille stadium):

http://www.lensois.com/index.php?Page=articles&ID=222

And president of lens said that he will make the official announcement in next weeks

it's strange they don't fill the corners...
Perhaps It will be done later.
I'm glad this is not a final project but the first step of a more complete rework of the stadium.

If you look corner will be filled in closing "air gap" and replacing them by hostel, commercial galleries

I suppose the architect wanted to keep the "spirit" of this english like stadim atmosphere. I think he made a good job because in the pics i feel this!!







i hope you understand now!

Whatever, if in the future there's need to upgrade the capacity (which I think won't happen), they'll find a way anyway.

Of course but for a competition like euro 2016 it is enough beautiful!!

i start to apreciate such a diversity in french stadium architecture:

Look they begin to be all interesting!

Stade de france
Lyon
Lille
Lens

If you want might opinion guys, it's about damn time! and Axelferis is right there's a nice diversity in the design. It's a good project a wise one financially sound and logical. 50000 is more than sufficiant.

All these clubs are putting Paris under pressure! When do we dig out the Parc Des Princes expansion project!

So anything can happen between this expansion (2010) and the adding of a retractable roof (2012)? Great.

I really think that with a more commfortable stadium, Lens average attendance will rise greatly.
Lens have a huge fan base in the area so I'll keep dreaming of an 56.000+ felix bollaert.

This project shows how pricey a good renovation can be. A 100M for 8000 seats a hotel, conference center, restaurants, concept store etc.

And you'll have to add the cost of the roof to those 100 millions isn't it?

Yes Neda say, I like the fact you can't take this stadium for another.

I really like the overall look of the stadium but I can't bare myself to find it "unfinished".
If it's done on purpose by the architect as Axelferis suggested, I don't find it an especially efficient idea. Perhaps more pix could make me revise my point of view.

Of course, the stadium will keep it's feeling and be very beautiful but i would love it better if it was corner-filled.

Bollaert will always remain assymterical, thanks to the railway...

France for Euro 2016!!!!

Congratulations! Man U will be wiped out again before getting to CL Final. That's because of arrogant and rude fans like you. haha

The Presidential tribune and the bevelled one will be hard to transform/expand in case someone want to furhter enlarge the stadium.
Of course, there will surely be work on their top to support the retractable roof but I don't seem them someday expand as long as the railway will be behind.

I respect the idea of the architect and admit it's pleasant to the eye but the corner that Axelferis named "closing gap" in his retouched pictures should have been filled with seats.
After all, the stadium would has still kept its caché because the corner on the right side of the bevelled tribune don't seems to be closed and the hostel, behing round and at few yards from the pitch, cannot really be considered as a closing gap.

But with so much open "walls", won't the inside of the stadium be too exposed to the wind and low temperatures when winter strikes?
