New Camp Nou

New Camp Nou Designed By Norman Foster

World-famous architect will give Barcelona's world-famous stadium a Gaudí-inspired facelift.

Barcelona FC home stadium, the Camp Nou, is to be given a €250m face-lift by the award-winning UK architect Lord Foster. The announcement was made as part of the stadium's 50th anniversary celebrations in september 2007.

The iconic stadium has been graced by some of the greatest names in world football, from current Barca players like Ronaldinho and Messi to superstars of the past such as Johan Cruyff and Diego Maradona.

As part of the redesign, the stadium's capacity will be increased from 98,000 to 106,000. The stadium will be given an outer shell composed of multi-coloured tiles, to reflect the style of Antoni Gaudí, a prominent local architect whose turn-of-the-century work can be seen all over the city. The tiles will be able to change colour and could even be used as a giant television screen.

Construction of the new Camp Nou work will begin in 2009 and is due to be completed by the start of the 2011-2012 season. Because the work is mostly cosmetic no fixtures will be affected.
