186cze_stadium as stadt

Auditorias, whether theatrical, sporting or acoustic, are typically ‘black box spaces’ removed from the city due to the technical requirements of light and sound. There are however a few examples of the stadia / auditoria with an urban connection. In the football we have Giorgio Gregotti’s San Siro, home of AC and Inter Milan which offers third tier views of the Duomo. Furthermore, Estadio de Braga by Eduardo Souto de Moura… introduces both the city and landscape as part of the sports viewing spectacle. And of course there is OMA’s Casa De Musica which offers a view of Porto as a backdrop to events on the stage.
