Located in Cape Town, the Green Point Stadium was designed by GMP Architects. And now the construction is in progress and expected for completion in 2010 to host the world’ biggest soccer event, FIFA World Cup. The stadium designed to seat 68,000 spectators on three tiers.
The image of Cape Town is uniquely characterised by the interaction of Table Mountain and Signal Hill – a soft, hilly landscape, and the surrounding Atlantic Ocean. Green Point Stadium will sit at the foot of Signal Hill. The exterior shell of the stadium was designed as an abstract, linearly arranged membrane construction.
