Exhibition Details

Exhibition Name:

Stadiums, Past and Future

Description: Since the Ancient Games, the stadium has transformed little by little, becoming more structured and now multifunctional. Its place in the city has also changed, and its social role has affirmed itself. From being a place of experimentation and audacity, the stadium has become an “architectural gesture,” an added value created by the greatest architects, which always appears in the city or region’s tourist brochures! This exhibition sets out to look at the stadium, this rather frightening colossus, through the prism of time.

The stadium will be looked at as a whole, and not just in terms of architecture. It consists of three parts, starting with the basic functions of the stadium (a place in which a sports performance can be refereed and where spectators can come together); the first part will look at its long history since Antiquity. The central part will look at the present day, focusing on the characteristics and challenges involved in building a stadium today, whether in terms of sustainability or the number of people involved. The final part will look at the future of stadiums: distant future, with a presentation of utopian stadiums, but also the near future, looking at the technology soon to be available and its impact on spectator numbers in stadiums.
