The newly-built Allianz Riviera Stadium in Nice, France, located 15-km away from Nice’s historical centre, and sitting in the heart of the Éco-Vallée of Plaine du Var, is actually comprised of three projects – a 35,000-seat multi-purpose stadium, a sports museum and an extensive, mixed real-estate development plan – all designed to meet specific environmental and urban integration requirements.
This large-scale intervention works in a coherent and intelligible manner so as to encourage urban synergy.
Largely inspired by a flying bird, the stadium’s overall shape essentially reflects the aim to reinforce the surrounding urban fabric. Likewise, shifting services like parking, underground allows for generous green spaces connecting the building to the rest of the neighborhood.
