Cool Dome Design Wins Bid To Built New Singapore National Staium


Recommended Posts

SINGAPORE: The "Cool Dome" design, submitted by the Singapore Sports Hub consortium, will be Singapore’s next iconic structure.

The Singapore government on Saturday revealed the consortium as its preferred bidder for the Singapore Sports Hub project.

The consortium beats two other bids.

The winning team’s strong programming line—up gave it the upper hand over their rivals.

These were the "Horse shoe shaped design" submitted by the Singapore Gold consortium and the "wrapped—Stadium design" submitted by the Alpine Mayreder.

The new sports hub will be completed by end 2011 and will cost some S$1.2 billion. — CNA/ir

Here were the proposed designs

Seclected design is in the middle. If you ask me , it about time Singspore got a new stadium. The current state is in now to really a nation shame considering our neighbour have new spanking stadiums. The new stadium has a giant screen on the roof. I'll post new pictures soon .

Yup , around 55 000. However, I think it can be expanded to up to about 80 000

Not having a go at Singapore but has there ever been a major stadium thats been expanded under its original plans without major reforming works. There are a lot of planned grounds going around that, although claim they can be expanded, would not be financially viable to do so...most the time its only the site physical aspects, rather than the actual architecture of the stadium.

Singapore has this interesting habit of emassing its army of national servicemen to build temporary tubular grandstands at the existing National Stadium, effectively increasing its seating capacity by a few thousand more. I was hoping the new stadium will finally render that practise obsolete, but looking at the design, I arent so sure...

So which one is it, Rockie? The top one (the retractable one)? OR the middle one (the crumpled, gift-wraped one)? Your posts have been quite contradictory and confusing.

Sorry about its one thats looks the UFO. Like the one Raven posted in the thread.
