From an architectural perspective, the project is conceived in section due to its location at the foot of the Cordillera, on a slight slope and looking towards the city of Santiago. For this, a main building is configured, which is shown towards the city and which houses a large part of the hospitality uses.
Starting from the current Stadium, anchored to the ground as if it were a Greek amphitheater, the new needs, the new uses and the increase in capacity, from 14,000 to 20,000 spectators, generates a volume that is perceived as unitary, light and elevated with respect to what exists. In this sense, the use of wood as the main element in the façade and the roof structure allows dialogue to be established between the tectonic and the light, while also being a sustainable resource, in line with the whole approach to the modernization of the Stadium.
A continuous boulevard is designed that allows access to all the upper part of the lower stands and that represents the line that separates what is linked to the ground from what is elevated. The new volumetric configuration will allow the stadium to go from being open to being closed covering the stands, generating a better football atmosphere, better acoustics and greater comfort for spectators. The stadium will also be 7/365, economically sustainable and with a wide range of hospitality activities.
