the only thing i dont like about the inside is the multi-colored seats. they should've just kept the colors to dark blue and grey or something and gotten rid of the green and turqoise. otherwise, this is one of the most beautiful stadiums in the world. i love it!!! so sleek and light. not heavy in design and construction materials used like most stadiums out there. and i love the fact it's 100% solar energy. this is groundbreaking in stadium design.

I think it's use of renewable energy should be a blueprint for any stadium using public funds in the future.

There is a bit too much concrete in some areas and I would change the coloring of the seats (though often see much worse) and the track but those are rather minor and can be easily changed. The fundemental concept and execution of the stadium is stunning IMO.

As long as it can be done functionally I agree. Wish the Cotton Bowl would take this and the model of the fabric retracting roofs and take their game back.

Thats my issue. Theres so much concrete, and space, between the tiers. It just doesnt do it for me.

The exterior is fine. I think its great. But the interior is a little too asian for me. It doesnt utilize space well.

You would think that with a stadium as groundbreaking as this that the interior would be something really, really special- something only found it that specific stadium, but i dont see that.

Some stadiums (public or private ones) in Europe already use renewable energy (actually, its a swiss know-how which was used for the stadium in Taiwan)...

Bern, Switzerland :


Zurich, Switzerland :


Basel, Switzerland :


Freiburg, Germany :


Kaiserslautern, Germany :


Bremen, Germany :


Nuremberg, Germany :


St Etienne, France :


Grenoble, France :


And also Sochaux, Montpellier and Lorient, France and Gothengurg, Sweden.

In France it's a recommendation from the government. There is an official standard about that for all green buildings (Public or private ones), including stadiums:
The Haute Qualité Environnementale or HQE (High Quality Environmental standard) it's a standard for green building in France, it's based on the principles of the Earth Summit !


Future Stadiums in France which will use renewable energies and rainwater collection systems in France:
Stade Jean Bouin (Paris), Grand Stade (Lille), Grand Stade (Le Havre), Ol Land (Lyon), Arena92 (Paris), Grand stade (Nice), Stade Nungesser II (Valenciennes) and some others...

technologically, it's cool those european stadium use solar power but aesthetically, i think those stadium designs are really lacking. all those stadiums are pretty boxy with solar panels just stuck on the roof.

kaohsiung world games stadium incorporates solar panels right into the actual stadium design and into the roof structure so much better. such an awesome design!!

You obviously have no idea what a football ground has to look like. These ground are aesthetically fine. There is no better way than to erect four shoe box stands around a football pitch.

no i dont watch soccer. :P but yes, there are nicer looking soccer stadiums around the world that aren't just boxy and boxed in around a rectangular soccer field. allianz stadium in munic is one example.

I don't know about the cost or the use of the kaohsiung world games stadium, but asthetically and architecturally this is IMHO one of the best stadiums in the past decades. Aesthetically one of the very few stadia that are up at the top level of the Olympic stadia in Berlin and Munich.
I don't know anything about the technological an financial aspects, but to me it seems to be a truely outstanding stadium. And I'm pretty reluctant in using that term. Surely one of my personal alltime favorites.
And what's amazing... on nearly every photo of whatever view or detail this stadium looks great. And that's very rarely the case, even with other great looking stadia. You can easily fill books with great photographies only of this stadium alone.

I can't get enough of the Kaoshuing stadium. It's cracking my top 5 for sure. I'd agree that the Olympiastadion in Munich takes the cake. I'd probably put the Montreal Olympic Stadium ahead, with the Stadio San Nicola and Niigata stadiums on par.

it cost about $150 million to build the stadium and taiwan spent $300 million overall for the world games which includes other venues like kaohsiung arena.

Yes your're right... The only difference is that in the US highest attendance during football (yes, it's football not soccer) games is during e.g. international games with countries such as Mexico - mostly due to high numbers of Mexican fans. On top of that - and I'm not even moving a step further on comparing - I assure you that the atmosphere during a football game in e.g. Poland with 10,000 - 15,000 fans on the stadium is light years away from what the US stadiums have... I'm sorry, you may have a great approach on commercialising sports, but you can't compare the atmosphere... ANd yes, I've been to a number of arenas in the US, basketball, baseball and football... I'd honestly choose 10k game anywhere else...

BEAUTIFUL STADIUMS. AESTHETICS. COHESIVENESS. DESIGN.

Not petty bitching about who's football is better atmosphere or fan base. Take that discussion to that useless overblown Football Fan Emotions thread (which has nothing to do with stadiums by the way). PLEASE.

Cheaper labor costs, lack of amenities such as corporate boxes and concession stands.

You won't find as much atmosphere anywhere in the U.S. as at a major college football venue like Camp Randall or the Swamp or Death Valley.
