The stadium was built for the 2018 Football World Cup

Nizhny Novgorod

Nizhny Novgorod Stadium …

… was designed by gmp architects from Germany for the 2018 World Cup. It lies at the confluence of the rivers Oka and Volga. The circular stadium provides seating for around 45,000 spectators and was opened in 2017. It is located within view of the city centre of the Russian metropolis amidst a park landscape that opens out onto the banks of the Volga River.

The design of the façade creates analogies with the theme of water that is a dominant feature in the city. Behind the colonnade that surrounds the building, a tensile cable structure holds blue and white membrane panels. The meshed fabric was produced in Germany by Low & Bonar GmbH. The mesh that was used for the stadium’s façade in Nizhny Novgorod is Valmex TF400 with an open area of 30%.
On the one hand, it serves the wave look in blue and white from the outside and, on the other hand, it gives an airy impression when viewed from the grandstand’s perspective, i.e. from the inside. As was the case for the Volgograd Arena, Low & Bonar developed a special blue. Here, it serves the architect’s idea of reflecting the water image within the façade. At the same time, it matches the colour of the club that will use the stadium in the future.
