The Aviva Stadium (previously called the New Stadium at Lansdowne Road) is the fi rst truly site responsive stadium of its kind in the world. Its form, mass, materials and aspect are defi ned by the site and its surrounds. A shimmering form of transparent ‘shingles’ rises in the east and west to position the majority of spectators in the desirable side locations of the pitch and falls in the north to minimise the impact of the building on the adjoining neighbourhoods. The transparent roof is lowered to the southern sky to maximise the sunlight onto the high performance sports turf to ensure that the best possible playing surface is produced. The undulating transparent form is an ephemeral addition to the skyline of Dublin. Refl ecting the colour of the sky and light conditions, the buildings façade is ever changing. Four seating tiers accommodate a range of seating types, from general admission to premium, with two separate tiers for private suite holders. The intensity of the Lansdowne experience is enhanced in the new stadium with 50,000 seats with unobstructed views are concentrated as close to the pitch as permissible to create an atmosphere to rival that of the coliseum. Glimpses of the city from within the arena connect this intense spectator experience with Dublin; an experience unique to Aviva Stadium. Within the stadium soaring double height spaces offer facilities with view to the pitch and out to the city beyond. Spectators at the new stadium will be offered world class facilities from fi ne dining restaurants and lounge bars to vast bars and eateries. Aviva Stadium is synonymous with a long tradition of exceptional sporting encounters. The new stadium will provide an international arena worthy to host a future of sporting excellence, and the design is the result of a joint partnership between Populous and Scott Tallon Walker Architects.
