Delivering a proposal based on architectural and sentimental values, specific to this stadium and no other; returning Nou Camp Nou as a restored home to FCB, its supporters, the City of Barcelona and the generations to come.
Moreover, the proposed stadium will be a multi-purpose facility; not only a space merely for watching football but also enjoying a museum, FCB Megastore and restaurants.
On 8 March, 2016 FC Barcelona announced that the Espai Barça jury had unanimously selected the bid by Nikken Sekkei + Pascual i Ausió Arquitectes as the winner of the tender for the design of the new Camp Nou. The jury, made up of five FCB members, three members of the Col·legi d’Arquitectes de Catalunya (COAC) and one member of Barcelona City Council, made its decision after a review of the different proposals by a technical commission in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations and requirements for the tender.
The Nikken Sekkei + Pascual i Ausió Arquitectes proposal stands out for being open, elegant, serene, timeless Mediterranean and democratic.
It is also notable for its relationship with the environment, providing depth, creating shadows and making members the stars of the facade and of the open area at all times. The proposal presents a very subtle attempt to intervene in the environment to facilitate circulation and achieve diverse urban usage in the Barça Campus and guarantees a clear and safe construction.
Through this renovation, Camp Nou will be reborn as a new sanctuary possessing open and abundant public space that suits the climate of Catalonia, which faces the Mediterranean Sea.
