There's no need for a lot of surface parking. People should expect to take mass transit to staduims.

Hopefully it's underground parking, that would be perfect.

Carver, I agree but our urban transportations can't handle 50 000 at one spot.

From LAVA's website:

Football and athletics-loving Ethiopians will have a new FIFA and Olympic-standard 60,000 seat stadium in Addis Ababa thanks to a competition winning design combining local identity with new technology.

LAVA, the LABORATORY FOR VISIONARY ARCHITECTURE, and DESIGNSPORT collaborated with local Ethiopian firm JDAW to win the international architecture competition for a national stadium and sports village, held by the Federal Sport Commission, Ethiopia.

Chris Bosse, LAVA director, said: “We have gone back to the very origin of stadium design with a sunken arena surrounded by grandstands formed from excavated material. This man-made crater is a clever remodelling of the existing terrain and generates efficient spaces, optimises environmental performance, minimises construction costs and integrates facilities within the existing landscape. ”

Addis architect Daniel Assefa and director of JDAW said: “The design references Ethiopia’s world-famous excavated architecture – centuries-old rock churches, dwellings and cisterns. We see the sports city as a natural extension to this heritage, one that will draw many more visitors to our beautiful country.”

The Massob, an Ethiopian communal serving basket made from woven grass, inspired the façade material that wraps the stadium. Daniel Assefa also notes: "The form of the stadium structure seen from the top view also recalls coffee beans, the main source of income in Ethiopia and the 'Mother womb', the skeleton of one of the first humans, Lucy, which is about 3.2 million years old".

The roof of the stadium, an intelligent membrane, appears like a cloud on the horizon of the vast Ethiopian sky, a lightweight tensile structure floating over the formed-earth landscape.

Themasterplan by the JDAW/DESIGNSPORT/LAVACONSORTIUM includesthe IOC-standard stadium for FIFA matches, athletics events, concerts,religious and national festivals; and a sports village comprising indoor andoutdoor aquatic centres, outdoor pitches, sports halls and arenas, dormitoriesand the headquarters for the Federal Sport Commission. Hospitality, retail and commercial zones will ensure that the precinct is vibrant throughout the year.

Tectonic structures and movement are the underlying concept for the masterplan. The breathtaking beauty of the surrounding Entoto Hills is the backdrop to a design that responds to the volcanic geology of the region. Gently undulating urban parkland follows the lines of the crater and is conceived as a continuous spatial experience strategically activated to balance movement, climate, experience and efficiency. A central plaza forms the heart of the project and a ridge connects all zones.

Giant solar powered umbrellas provide shade and shelter whilst pedestrian activated light and water features appear as fissures in the ground surface, providing way finding and creating animated art works.

Bosse, who was one of the lead architects of the Beijing Watercube whilst at PTW architects, has again combined new technology with traditional architectural principles. The façade patterns are digitally created through parametric modelling and are built with local materials.

CEO of DESIGNSPORT Samantha Cotterell said: “We put together our culturally diverse team to produce an innovative concept. We are excited at the prospect of taking our expertise and translating it through the cultural lens of Africa.”

“With sustainable design features, maximum flexibility and capacity, and intelligent adaptability, the new facilities will make a valuable contribution to the local people, the nation and its culture, enhancing Ethiopia’s sporting profile and generating revenue,” added Cultural Consultant and Architect, John Shenton.

LAVA’s German directors, Alexander Rieck and Tobias Wallisser said: “Coming from a football nation ourselves we are thrilled that LAVA can contribute to this African nation’s joy in the global sport.”

The construction of the stadium is expected to commence in 2014.

IF the completed building looks even 10% like the render, it'll be amazing.

Ethiopia want to bid to host major tournaments By Durosimi Thomas
BBC Sport


The President of the Ethiopia Football Federation Sahilu Gebre Mariam insists his country will be bidding to stage a major event in the near future.
He is determined to re-establish Ethiopia's position as one of the pioneers of African football.
"Any time soon we shall be bidding for the Africa Cup of Nations," he said.
"Previously we were not in a position because of the infrastructure, but any time within two years we shall demand that we should organise an event."
Sahilu's statement comes as Ethiopia showed some good form on the pitch in 2014 World Cup and 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Ethiopia's Nations Cup history
Hosted: 1962, 1968, 1976
Champions: 1962
Runners-up: 1957
Participated: 1957, 1959, 1962, 1963, 1965, 1968, 1970, 1976, 1982



They have also recently announced the construction of a new national stadium in Addis Ababa, that is expected to be completed by 2014.
The Walyas drew 1-1 in South Africa and then beat visiting Central African Republic 2-0 to put themselves top of their World Cup qualifying group.
The 1962 African champions have also reached the last round of qualifying for next year's Nations Cup after drawing 1-1 with Benin and advancing on the away goals rule.
Ethiopia, one of the four founding members of the Confederation of African Football, have hosted the Nations Cup three times in 1962, 1968 and 1976 but their last appearance at the finals was 30 years ago in Libya.
It is not just the men's team finding success, the women's national team have qualified for the African Women's Championship in Equatorial Guinea later this year after eliminating Tanzania.
"In three or four of our regions there is big infrastructure of stadia and it's world class," Sahilu told BBC Sport.
"The federal state is also building a national stadium in Addis Ababa that will have a capacity of 60,000.
"So you see because of the results and the performance of both squads it has become a spring board to motivate all the sports communities and to wake up the government as well to react accordingly.
"I think it is a good momentum and we shall keep it up."
Ethiopia last staged a continental tournament in 2001 when they hosted the Under-20 African Youth Championship, which was won by Angola.
Away from football there have been improvements too with international hotel chains investing in the country and telecommunications access improving rapidly in recent years.
The Ethiopian government also has plans to embark on a massive rail and road expansion.

I am glad that Addis Ababa is finally getting a brand-new national stadium. It was proposed because the city lacked an international-standard stadium. The stadium has a design referencing Ethiopia's excavated architecture, and its capacity would be somewhere in the mid-60Ks range (all seated). The new stadium will have the potential to host major events, such as the African Nations Cup, the All-Africa Games, and the IAAF World Athletics Championships.
