Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club have finally achieved planning consent for a new 22,374-seat stadium at Falmer after a seven year long campaign. The Falmer site lies on an urban edge adjacent to the Sussex Downs, which provides the inspiration for the architectural form. The stadium is designed to nestle into the landscape, with a curved translucent roof supported by two tubular butterfly arches evoking the surrounding gently rolling hills. The topography of the site allows the facades facing the natural landscape to be cut into the hillside, thereby reducing the visible bulk of the stadium, and the dramatic form is expressed as a gateway to the City of Brighton and Hove along the busy A27.
