Some great photos there, Ramma - thank you.

It is quite a good looking design and it should make an excellent stadium.

However, part of me laments the passing of the old stadium, as it was such great looking little stadium, with a very elegant roof on the two larger stands.

One question on Austria Wien new stadium:

Standing room on the Ost Tribune will be on bottom and upper tier or just bottom?

A Forest is to Grow on the Field in Klagenfurt

It's not a metaphor, rather "Austria's Largest-Ever Art Project". For two months in 2018, SK Austria Klagenfurt is barred from the Wörthersee Stadion because a forest of 200 trees will be planted inside. This project, titled "For Forest", is an idea by Klaus Littman. It has been his long-standing dream to re-create a famous Austrian sketch by Tyrolean native Max Peintner, which depicts the Praterstadion in Vienna. The exhibition will take place from September 8 to October 31.

Any thoughts on this installation, fellow users?

‘For Forest – The Unending Attraction of Nature’ by Klaus Littmann has transformed the Wörthersee Stadium in Klagenfurt into Austria’s largest public art installation

The project was conceived by artist Klaus Littmann – who first saw the pencil drawing, The Unending Attraction of Nature, by Max Peintner more than 30 years ago – and held on to the idea of turning this striking dystopia into a reality.

In Peintner‘s pencil drawing from the 1970s, the threat to our natural environment is conveyed by a thought experiment, the idea of imagining a time when forests will exist only as exhibition objects.

^^

They took all the trees
And put them in a tree museum
And they charged all the people
A dollar and a half just to see 'em
