Architects gmp win international competition for Joze Plecnik stadium in Ljubljana, Slovenia
The international competition for the renovation of Joze Plecnik's Central Stadium in Slovenia
has been won by architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners of Berlin.
The stadium, designed by the 19th century Slovene architect will be renovated in keeping with its status as a historic monument and converted into an up-to-date multi-functional facility.
Among modernization measures proposed
are a new tier for a total of 12,000 spectators, 60 VIP boxes and a new roof. The historic "Glorieta" will
be clear of the roof, so that the listed historic architecture of Joze Plecnik (who designed the
Slovene National Library) will form the central feature of the stadium.
Additional indoor sport and entertainment functions plus over 2,000 parking places
will be accommodated beneath the terraces and pitch. Adjoining buildings include
a 72m (236 ft) high-rise hotel building and eight five-storey point-blocks for office use.
