"We want to provide a stadium with a fixed roof of 25 500m2 and a central oculus retractable 12 000m2, to improve comfort and optimization of the carbon footprint."
Waldemar Kita, President of @ FCNantes : "We need a stadium to meet the needs of the club, a city stadium for all, at the heart and interface with a neighborhood of life and what remains to be deepened with the public, the supporters and partners."

The interior loks a bit like new White Hart Lane, the roof looks like Frankfurt/Bucharest and the exterior looks pretty different.

I like it a lot!

Probably the project will go to further changes, but this concept so far is spetacular

It reminds me a little bit of the Berlin Philharmonie as a stadium. Looks completely unique and a really excellent place for football.

The mayoress of the city, Johanna Rolland, has given the green light for the construction of the new stadium of the French first division FC Nantes. The stadium is expected to cost around 200 million euros and provide space for 40,000 spectators. However, the pleasure of the responsible contractor Réalités is clouded by the fact that the YelloPark is not implemented as an overall project. Originally, about 1,500 apartments and commercial space were to be built around the stadium. The stadium will still be built, but no public money will be used to finance it. FC Nantes emphasizes that only a new stadium can ensure the sustainable development of football in the city.

Surprisingly, however, it was also known that the current stadium of the club, the Stade de la Beaujoire, contrary to original plans is not demolished. The mayor explained that similar situations are also to be found in Bordeaux or Lyon. But the comparison is difficult, because: there the former football stadiums Stade Gerland (Lyon) and Stade Chaban Delmas (Bordeaux) were taken over by the resident rugby teams. In Nantes, however, there is no need for two big stadiums. The rugby team from Nantes plays in the third division and has an average attendance of around 1,500.

Despite the announcement of the mayor, the construction is not yet final. On December 7, the city council will decide whether the construction will be implemented.

Plans for a new stadium for French Ligue 1 football club FC Nantes have been given the go-ahead by the local Metropolitan Council.

Fifty-three council members voted in favour of the plans, with 41 voting against and one abstention.

Nantes plans on building a 40,000-seat stadium next to its current home, the Stade de la Beaujoire. The €200m (£179m/$228m) project, which has been dubbed ‘YelloPark’, features a retractable roof and a giant 360-degree screen.

The council has also approved plans for the maintenance of the current Stade de la Beaujoire. It is hoped the new stadium will be open by 2023, although the sale of the land still requires council approval at a meeting next February.

FC Nantes president Waldemar Kita said: “The project is taking an important step today. With the whole team, we welcome this positive signal.

“We will continue our work to consolidate the technical and architectural aspect of the new stadium, and the financial package so that the state services can determine the price of the land and allow the elected metropolitan to make a final decision. We are confident in the outcome of our successful project for the club and the territory.”

Not sure what to make of it now. It's certainly different, but looks to be trying too hard in order to stand out from other stadiums.

The dynamism of that design seems like it will add a lot to the construction cost but with limited return on that investment. The points and curves of the form don't quite yield an iconic original structure or space that is so special that any viewer will say "I need to see that place," yet it will surely increase the time and specialty pieces the drive the construction tab up dramatically.

Visually it's not intriguing as much as it is frustrating, where spectators will spend more time going "Why?" rather than "Wow!"

But that's just me.
