KCAP's plan for Nieuwe Kuip Rotterdam selected for second round

KCAP's vision for the Nieuwe Kuip stadium in Rotterdam has been chosen as one of 7 proposals to enter a second round of evaluation.

In January 2014 a market initiative started in which consortia/architects/planners could present their plan for the Nieuwe Kuip stadium in Rotterdam. Back in 2008, KCAP designed the urban vision for the area Stadionpark and now presented their plan of the stadium to a group of experts.

The experts expect a preliminary advise in March 2014. This will be discussed with the local politics. In april a definitive advice shall be formulated.

The new stadium has to provide space for 63.000 visitors, offer more comfort and security than the current one but should not have less of the unique atmosphere the the existing stadium is famous for.

The other candidates are:

  • Red de Kuip
  • BAM
  • VolkerWessels
  • Zwarts Jansma
  • Prof.dr. Hennes de Ridder
  • Erick van Egeraat
