Yeah, only the most uncomfortable, coldest-on-the-tush, without sky-boxes, without concession-stands, handicapped-unfriendly, half-finished 'stade' in the world.

And it isn't even closed at the one end. Whakind of a stadium is that?

And where are the toilets?

This "slice" architecture (I think Bruges is the first real example, unfortunately it wasn't realised, despite my personal engagement in favour of it) can also be seen in another design of his: University of Phoenix Stadium (Arizone Cardinals, NFL).

Yes I do.

Even for 1896, I don't think it was really a prize. I mean even then they didn't have enough funds to finish it. I don't care about its historical significance. If it has no relevant use for the present day (other than those Ceremonies, ), then I am not awed by it.

I believe the thread is about beauty, not about toilets soft drinks. Also what do think the standards were for toilets and concessions and tip up seats in 1896? And the thing is made out of marble and granite, looks quite nicely formed and finished to me, or are all horseshoe's unfinished to you?

Or we could do it you way install seats, stack some suites on there add a tone of concessions stand and close the open end (hey maybe with a stack of suites!). I mean theres' no way that would totally ruin THE original stadium.

It was not planned to look like ancient stadiums, it IS an ancient stadium. The first marble version of the stadium dates back to 329 B.C., but according to Wiki it was a wooden stadium before. The current stadium, built in 1895, is a reconstruction. And I guess it has been renovated again for the 2004 Olympics.

The stadium has incredible historical significance, the shape is unique and the setting is nice as well. A perfect stadium for this thread and any changes to it would simply destroy it.

aww damn. i geniunly believed it was the old ancient ruin just touched up a bit. and i loved it.

meh, but then I'm gonna jump onboard with rover on this one. sure, it's beautiful in its own right, but it's just a copy. nothing special then. i like the remnants of old british (granted not late 1800's old) stadiums and so on a lot more then.

olympia stadion in berlin is an old stadium that captures a lot of the beauty of the athens one.

it's also inspired by ancient arenas (as we remember hitler was also planning a huge 400k+ stadium directly inspired by this athens one) but it was done to fit its own time also and furthermore has been refurbished quite handsomely for the 2006 WC.

It was in too bad of a shape to just "touch up a bit". Not that much of a surprise for a stadium that was already 2.224 years old in 1895 (and who knows how old the original wooden stadium was). The remnants of the ancient structure were excavated and refurbished. It was an athletics stadium from the very beginning.

I don't see what's so fake about that? Even if you forget about it's ancient history, it's still one of the first stadiums of the modern times, and the first modern Olympic stadium. If that isn't enough history for you.

What's your point? It's history, heritage, a monument.

Anyway, you're messing up this thread.

The rather unique (and award-winning) Stadio San Nicola in Bari, Italy is my nomination:

It is a beauty (by a great architect), but infact this topic bears the wrong title, it's primarily about stadium settings.

By the way, what happened to the original "beautiful stadiums" thread? I did a lot of research to post my personal top-10...

What -- you can't deviate a little and debate intellectually about the worthiness or unworthiness of a 'stadium' or not?

Then it should just be a picture gallery.

BTW, I like that stadium in Bari -- or at least the exterior.

There's been a bit of a clean-up, it would appear.

Stadium in the most beautiful setting? Okay, how about:


Newlands Cricket Ground, Cape Town, South Africa


Tivoli Stadium, Innsbruck, Austria

While I have some sympathy with your point, neither do you need to be psychic. Copy and paste it into Google or Wikipedia and hey presto! You should try it ;-)
