Plans for a 150,000 Nou Camp unveiled

Catalan architect Emili Vidal proposes 150,000 capacity “Camp Nou at Sea” for Barcelona

Catalan architect Emili Vidal has launched a counter-proposal to Norman Foster’s 2007 plans for a new stadium for Barcelona FC.

To commemorate the 50th of anniversary of the Camp Nou, Barcelona contracted English architect Norman Foster to re-structure the stadium in 2007. His plan was to spend around €250m on remodelling and to expand capacity by 10,000.

However, not everyone was impressed with Foster’s plan, as it apparently fails to solve some access problems. So Catalan architect Emili Vidal has put together a counter proposal: Camp Nou at sea.

Vidal’s new Camp Nou would have a whopping 150,000 capacity, and be built on an artificial island just off the coast of Barcelona..

  • Surely Norman Foster's alternative is cheaper to construct not to mention, a much better looking structure.
