The desing of Stadium Australia looks little bit with the Olympic Athens Stadium (OAKA). See pic below:

http://www.sport.gr/

What I love about this is that they took an old stadium just as charmless as any other of this "east-block" kind and turned it into something fresh and spectacular. The roof gave the concrete wings! Maybe my favorite stadium in the world of the track n field type. And the concrete tribunes are quite spectacular too if you look closely how they are constructed.

The Olympic Stadium has a long and very interesting history, an actual "ugly duck that became a swan" fairytale.
from www.stadia.gr
The foundation stone for the Olympic Stadium was laid on 7/1/1980. Its construction was revolutionary and involved the use of a prefabrication method for the 34 sets of pillars supporting the stands (each weighed 600 tons). About 26,000 seats of the lower tier were covered, while the stadium's most striking feature were the four leaning pillars that held its floodlights, each being 62 metres tall. The Athens Olympic Stadium was finally inaugurated in September 1982.

Below are older photos of the Athens Olympic Stadium, before the extensive works that literally transformed it for the 2004 Olympic Games. It was the summer of 2002 that marked the end of the first era, not just for the stadium, but generally for the Athens Olympic Sports Complex (AOSC, better known by its initials in Greek as OAKA).
As it is clear, the stadium was constructed in record time, especially considering this happend more than 20 years ago. The reason was no other than the pressing dates for the 1982 European Athletics Championships. The last great event that the stadium hosted before its recent upgrading were the 1997 World Athletics Championships.


This was Athens sport complex when the stadium was completed. Reminds you anything?


During the Olympic preperations, the plan was to convert this:



Into this:



The transformation took years and billions of Euros in a wild race to make it to the Olympics in time.The project was huge for the stadium alone, as it required the roof to be build away from the stadium and then transfered into place!






The stadium was finished in time, and the result was beyond everyones wildest dreams:

Maybe we should start a thread about OAKA in the "completed section". But we need to talk to the mod, Sercan, first.

wow very nice
Except i heard alot of negative reports about the stadium. A news report showed that costs were too high, its not used much and it was rundown. people were also complaining because they were not allowed to use the stadium.
It is a beautiful stadium, looks similar to one of the 2010 Stadiums in South Africa

I made a new thread about it.
I'm not sure if the most heavily used stadium in Europe is to be considered abadoned... But we have discussed this so many times... Apparently the negative propaganda after each olympics (mostly produced in a specific coutry) is getting tiresome to clear out.
