Incheon stadium designed to turn into park after Asian Games

Incheon stadium designed to turn into park after Asian Games | green streets | Scoop.it

The Incheon main stadium being built for the 2014 Asian Games will be transformed into a public park after the sports festival, demonstrating a sustainable design in stadiums in Asia, the architecture firm that designed it has said.

The new stadium will hold 70,000 people for the games, but it can reduce down to a single-sided grandstand for 30,000 afterwards and be turned into a park.

“If the social legacy is done the way it was initially planned, I think the world will sit up and notice that Korea is leading the way in delivering a sports project legacy,” Andrew James, Populous’ senior principal, told The Korea Herald.

The key factor for the stadium’s success after the games will be linking it into the surrounding parklands, transforming it into an open and accessible building for everyone to enjoy. Populous is working on the project with local firm Heerim Architects and Planners.
