London based wooarchitects have been appointed by Limak Construction for the redevelopment of the home of FC Barcelona, the Spotify Camp Nou.
Chosen for their technical expertise in sports architecture and stadium redevelopment, wooarchitects will be working in conjunction with Spanish company Ghesa, Australian engineer Robert Bird Group and crowd movement specialist, Movement Strategies. They will form Limak Construction’s design and delivery team in transforming Europe’s largest and most iconic sporting venue.
Kevin Owens, founder of wooarchitects, said: “It’s a privilege to be working on such a landmark project. Our work will provide a legacy for a new age of sporting achievement, and visually transform the stadium to respond to the needs and aspirations of 21st century audiences.”
