Olympic stadium Berlin

On July 7, 1998, the invitation for the competition "Redevelopment Olympic stadium Berlin" was published. From the total of fifty seven applications, ten candidates were selected to work on the project. Our planning consortium, composed of the consultancies Gerkan, Marg und Partner, engineering consultancy Prof. Burkhardt, I'RW and Krebs und Kiefer won the competition.
The Olympic stadium is to be renovated as a listed building and modernised to permit multifunctional utilisation for both track and field athletics, major events and professional football. This listed building status and multifunctionality synthesise in our draft. The new stand roof, with its translucent skin, is deliberately and clearly differentiated from the solid tectonics of the historic stadium, and amplifies, with its ingeniously devised lighting, the building's unique identity. The competition areas are to be relaid in the context of a lowering of pitch level by 3.5 m, permitting a capacity of 77,000 spectators for international sporting events.
