Architect Erick van Egeraat presents his vision for a new Stadium in Rotterdam
‘To develop a Stadium for merely Football these days is not a viable option.’ According to Erick van Egeraat, he envisions a new ‘Kuip‘ stadium which comprises of a mixture of Sport, Retail and Leisure. ‘This combination ensures an economic viability for the future. I envision a new venue which embraces the City and City-life and will become an accelerant for the City of Rotterdam.’
Erick van Egeraat’s vision embraces the historical values of the existing Stadium to add a new layer of program. Thus the new Stadium becomes more then a sports arena but a place for everyone to enjoy. Be it via events, relaxation or shopping. In this way on old Icon will transform into the main sports and entertainment center for Rotterdam.
