Project Status: Competition, first prize; Ongoing project

This commission was won in an invited competition organised by the City. The design was made in collaboration with Bolthauser Architects and Pool Architects in Zurich. The design will provide a new 18,500 capacity football stadium for Zurich’s two clubs FCZ and GC. The site is in Zurich West, the former industrial area of Zurich, which is undergoing intense redevelopment as a mixed office and residential city quarter. The site will be provided by the City, with the developer providing the stadium and financing its construction with two mixed-use high-rise buildings at the west end of the site next to the Limmat river. The project also includes 173 cooperative apartments.
