ULGC Sunday Roundup

Last week revealed a series of new projects and under construction projects. Some will be completed next year, others will start construction the same year. Among many others:

In Progress: Grand Stade Lille Métropole:  The new multi-use stadium or Grand Stade Lille Métropole (Villeneuve d'Ascq, France) for the Football club of Lille (also known as LOSC) is in progress. In case you missed it, Bordeaux-based architect Pierre Ferret was selected for the design of this new stadium. The stadium is announced to have a capacity of 50,157. It is due to be completed by 2012. The Grand Stade Lille Métropole website unveiled photos of the construction of the stadium.

I like: Slovenia-based OFIS Arhitekti's Football Stadium FC Bate Borisov's elegant porous envelope. America-based eVolo Magazine has posted some images of the stadium. The envelope design is inspired by various patterns such as foam of soap bubbles, foam-like membrane structures of cells or Voronoi cell structure. The skin is perforated with voids that have irregular shapes.
