FENWICK IRIBARREN ARCHITECTS WON THE INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION ORGANIZED BY R.C.D. ESPANYOL FOR THEIR NEW FOOTBALL STADIUM, NEW CLUB HEADQUARTERS, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF ADJACENT BUILDINGS. THE COMPETITION INCLUDED OTHER RENOWNED FINALISTS SUCH AS JEAN NOUVEL, HOK, AND ARQUITECTÓNICA.

  • Client RCD Espanyol
  • Location Barcelona Spain
  • Size 70.000M2
  • Spectators 40.000
  • Status Finished

The program consisted of a stadium for 40,000 spectators, new club offices, a club museum, and a hotel of approximately 4,000 square meters.

The stadium was designed to encompass several qualities that the previous stadium lacked.

Special attention was given to creating a bowl that was very close to the pitch, akin to an english stadium, so that the fans could fully experience the match, and at the same time, the team could feel close to their supporters.
