FC Barcelona Stadium
The new Camp Nou is first and foremost a place for supporters and players to congregate in
celebration of the sport. It is conceived as the respectful completion of Francesc Mitjans-Miró’s
architecture, originally built in 1957. Rather than starting from scratch or covering the old surfaces of
the historical stadium, we propose to lay bare the bones of the heritage stadium in an honest
encounter with the new architecture – within and without.
Camp Nou will be a palace for the people, composed of functional elements and everyday materials
selected from the material palette of traditional and contemporary Catalan architecture, where we
unify the Blaugrana identity into the bones of the building through inherent attributes.
The new stadium has to be strongly integrated with the 4 major surrounding elements: the new
Campus Espai Barça, Les Corts new district, the UPC University and the Maternitat Gardens. A highly
ambitious urban renewal effort, the new Camp Nou will be “a good fellow citizen” of les Corts with
the highest ambition to become a great and lively neighborhood 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Camp Nou will not only be home to FC Barcelona’s new stadium – it will be all of Barcelona’s new
