3XN Architects win contract to build multipurpose arena in Munich

by Andrew Manns | 14 Feb 2019

Danish architecture firm 3XN have been tapped to build an as-yet-unnamed stadium in Munich's Olympic Park.

Set to occupy the site of the recently demolished Radstadion velodrome – the arena will feature three canopied ice rinks and an oval-shaped green roof that merges with the surrounding park landscape.

Landscape design for the al fresco space and the ground-level concourse will be carried out by Latz + Partner.

Another notable element of the structure will be its facade, which will have a lamellar or membranous shape, representing a series of interlinking bone tissue.

Once complete, the 11,500-seat sports complex will be the home of two professional clubs: Eishockeyclub (EHC) Red Bull München and FC Bayern München Basketball.

Plans for the Olympic Park property were first lodged in September 2018 by software company SAP SE, the project's developer.

Commenting on the building scheme, Munich's mayor, Christine Strobl, said: "The new sports arena will integrate harmoniously with the existing park landscape, while its structured facade and roof greening will create elegant highlights.

"For the City of Munich, the special agreement to make the ice rinks available to its citizens for 8,000 hours each season presents a unique opportunity to create excellent skating conditions for schools, clubs and the general public.

"The sports arena will help strengthen the Olympic Park's position as an outstanding venue for both professional and grassroots sports in Munich."

Today, SAP launched #NameGameOn, a social media campaign inviting fans to propose names for the future facility. The competition will run until 14 March.

The project's expected completion date is 2021.
