Wembley Stadium by The World Stadium Team: Foster + Partners / HOK Sport

  • Comment

Wembley, London

At almost four times the height of the original Empire Stadium, covering twice the footprint area, and with 90,000 seats, the new Wembley Stadium is the largest football stadium in the world where every seat is covered by roof. The most prominent feature is a spectacular 133 metre high arch. Leaning over the north side of the stadium, the arch supports the roof and at night can be illuminated at night to create a dramatic landmark visible from points across London. The stadium also features a partly retractable roof which allows the grass pitch to be exposed to enhance natural light and ventilation for improved growing conditions.
