Alternative UEFA EURO 2016 Project
This is a stadium reconstruction project in Konya by Turkish Football Federation for the UEFA Euro 2016 . The projected EURO 2016 Stadium meets all requirements of UEFA and will be a part of an ensemble with a brand new multi-sports hall, an athletic stadium, a velodrome and different multi sports areas. The stadium and the Sports Park are located on a 40 hectare spot 8 km in the north of the city centre, projected by the authorities as a sports and recreation area and surrounded by a new residential area that is still under construction. The design of the new stadium is a tribute to the Konya region, its history, its traditions and its locals, an allegory of the dance of the Derwishes and also Konya’s reputation as a “Cycling City”. While the undulation of the round shaped tribunes are transforming the dance of Derwishes into a new dimension, the roof is designed as a “Spoke Wheel”. Especially during evening events the combination of these elements create an inimitable sign symbolizing the city of Konya. The semi transparent screen façade renders the characteristic conic shape and allows laser shows and the projection of images from outside and the inside as well. The stadium is designed as a one-tier-stadium with a formidable east and west stand ”“ both have more than 60 rows ”“ and will achieve a great atmosphere for the spectators, for instance the fantastic view for the VIP and the media from the west to the east stand. Furthermore, the multifunctional prepared stadium will have fitness and physiotherapy centre available and shops as well. The VIP club will be used also as a public restaurant and a rentable event location. Also the design of the north and south stands allow the extension with exclusive lounge satellites and sky gardens. As part of the accommodation concept in Konya, the Sports Park will contain several apartment buildings that will be used after the UEFA EURO 2016 as dormitories and residential houses as well. Beyond that, the ecological sustainability of the stadium building will be achieved by innovative integrated measures that will effect in symbiosis long lasting benefits for the stadium operator. This measures include an integrated sun protection by a screen façade helping to minimise the need of air conditioning, a grey water use for toilets and natural green (dual water supply + rainwater) to reduce potable water use by 50%+ and the use of recyclable and low energy building materials. Furthermore, a permanent use of local high efficient cogeneration energy supply for the stadium and the residential area around is scheduled to increase the efficiency of energy production from 60% to 95% - only emergency power supply will be guaranteed by general power grid. Last but not least roof mounted solar panels will save ecological resources and reduce energy costs.
