London Olympic Stadium Transformation

Legacy was always a key part of the original Olympic Stadium design. In order that it can operate as both an international athletics venue and the new home of West Ham United FC, Populous’ legacy design incorporates an automated system of retractable seating, with the complete lower bowl able to move next to the pitch in football mode. The new roof will be the largest single-span cable-net stadium roof structure in the world, and will improve acoustics and create an incredible fan experience.
