MANICA Joins New Camp Nou Stadium Design Team

Oct 04, 2016

MANICA Architecture has joined the design team for the New Camp Nou Stadium renovation for FC Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain and is providing technical sport design services to the architects of the project: Nikken Sekkei + Pascual i Ausió Arquitectes.

On 8 March, 2016 FC Barcelona announced that the Espai Barça jury had unanimously selected the bid by Nikken Sekkei + Pascual i Ausió Arquitectes  as the winner of the tender for the design of the new Camp Nou. The jury, made up of five FCB members, three members of the Col·legi d’Arquitectes de Catalunya (COAC) and one member of Barcelona City Council, made its decision after a review of the different proposals by a technical commission in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations and requirements for the tender.


The  design concept was selected by FCB for being  open, elegant, serene, timeless Mediterranean and democratic. Also of note is its respectful relationship with its surroundings and the city: providing visual depth by creating shade and shadows along the facade,  and a beautiful sense of openness at all times.. The design subtlety intervenes with the neighborhood to facilitate circulation and achieve diverse urban usage in the Barça Campus while simultaneously guaranteeing a clear and safe phased construction period over multiple playing seasons.
