Stadium and Arena Design (Stadium Engineering, 2nd edition)

Description
Winner of the Washington DC - Baltimore Society for Technical Communication's 2015-2016 Award of Excellence

Stadium and Arena Design recognises the importance of the multidisciplinary approach required to design, build and run modern, international stadiums. Bringing together a broad range of knowledge from specialists in each of the key areas of stadium and arena design, this book provides up-to-date, practical guidance for professionals in the field, researchers and students.

Building on the success of the award-winning Stadium Engineering, this second edition has been fully updated for the contemporary demands of the sporting facilities industry. Stadium and Arena Design begins with a tour through the evolution of stadium design from the Eighth Century BC to present-day achievements in sporting arenas, including the Olympics and the FIFA World Cup. Coverage includes in-depth analysis and explanation of all aspects of design and construction, from site appraisal and material technologies to crowd circulation and signage. New and updated chapters to this edition include topics such as sustainable design, artificial and natural turf and retractable roofs.

Stadium and Arena Design:
•provides expanded guidance and detailed, technical information on all aspects of the planning, design, operation and maintenance of stadiums
•offers a range of global case studies and good practice focusing on innovation and emerging technologies
•delivers a truly cross-disciplinary perspective and promotes a collaborative approach through the design and construction processes
•includes bibliographies and links to a wealth of additional information in this exciting field.

With contributions from across the industry and a wide range of case studies including Wimbledon Centre Court, UK, Beijing Olympic Stadium, China and Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium, UAE, Stadium and Arena Design is an essential reference for all construction professionals and practitioners involved in the design, construction and evaluation of stadiums internationally.
