In this completely updated and redesigned edition of the essential and long-established Stadia, the authors offer their unrivalled expertise to all professionals who commission, plan, design, and manage high-quality sports venues.
This fourth edition features over twenty case studies of recent projects in Europe, America, Australia, China and Japan, and the technical sections contain substantial new information on master planning and designing for the disabled.
In addition to a wide array of international information sources, the authors were able to draw on the experience of the design firm that delivered the 1999 Cardiff Millennium stadium, the 2000 Sydney Olympic stadium, the 2002 Reliant stadium in Houston, the 2005 Nanjing Sports Park, the new grandstand for Ascot Racecourse, and the recently completed Wembley stadium.
"Such huge projects demand a rigorous approach and this book make an ideal 'catch up' with all the main issues for anyone who is getting involved in stadium development."
