design for new stadium

HOK Sport has unveiled this design for a new stadium for Benfica Football Club in Lisbon. The 65,000-seat structure will replace the club's existing stadium on an adjacent site overlooking the Tagus estuary. The £69 million Estadio de Luz (Stadium of Light) will be completed in time for the 2004 European Championships.

Facilities include a museum, fitness centre and restaurants. A club mega-store is also to be integrated into the building. Lighting effects are being designed to make the structure appear to hover above the ground.
