New Camp Nou | Nikken Sekkei + Pascual Ausio Arquitectes

New Camp Nou

The design concept was selected by FCB for being open, elegant, serene, timeless Mediterranean and democratic. Also of note is its respectful relationship with its surroundings and the city: providing visual depth by creating shade and shadows along the facade, and a beautiful sense of openness at all times.

Facade Detail

The design subtlety intervenes with the neighborhood to facilitate circulation and achieve diverse urban usage in the Barça Campus while simultaneously guaranteeing a clear and safe phased construction period over multiple playing seasons. MANICA is providing technical sport design services to the architects of the projectNikken Sekkei +Pascual Ausio Arquitectes
