The stadium has to be up to the IOC standard which is at least 85,000 occupants (correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty confident that's the standard.) I know the UK (my heritage) can accomplish AT LEAST that. I think a redesign is in order. It's time for the UK to strut it's stuff. Right now in my opinion compared to Beijing and Athens. It just isn't cutting it for me.

The IOC benchmark is 60,000. This stadium meets IOC and IAAF requirements.

They are doing it to show people that the upper tiers are a temporary structure and the lightness of the stadium. This is the whole basis of why the stadium is the way it is.

1 to 10

Athens Olympics Stadium* = 8.00

*(NOTE: Calatrava only designed the trussed roof.)

Atlanta = 12.00 (HMK)

Barcelona = 9.5 (Fascisti & Hijos)

Beijing Olympics Stadium = 9.3 (Herzog & Meuron)

Chicago = 11.5 (SOM)

Los Angeles = 11.0

London Olympics Stadium = 6.5 (...?)

Only the sunken lower bowl of 25,000 permanent seats will remain.

Hundreds of millions of pounds are not going to be wasted so the UK can "strut its stuff", money that would be much better spent on perminant structures.

The stadium really isnt anything speical but I see very little problem with it either, certainly nowhere near the diaster that was Atlanta in 96.

It may not be an architectural wonder on the outside, but on the inside is where it is going to come alive. It's the tightest bowl I think in an Olympic stadium which is going to create an incredible atmosphere.

If they are only keeping the sunken bowl, then IMO they should have a glass dome over the top of it when it is in Legacy Mode which is open at the top. That would look cool.

Theres no need to remove anything.

Thats how wembley looks withan open roof. They just need to add 2 wooden temporery end stands to that (with there own steel support, so that the wemblay remains untouched)
