Recollections of modernist Art contributed subconsciously to shape the conceptual idea for this 30,000 seat soccer stadium supported by circulation elements and combined with a 6,000 seat track and field stadium. The architectural footprint of this international competition entry winner could be attributed to a certain visual and compositional order evident in examples of abstract art as precedent. This footprint extruded into a section and capped by a suspended steel canopy, is juxtaposed against the distant ground of a mountain range, and read as a symbol realized from a synthesis of multiple themes.
