Aberdeen Arena approved
March 2 2011
Miller hope to complete the 21,000 capacity multi purpose venue in time for the 2013/2014 season but this is dependant on final approval from the Scottish Government being forthcoming.
In a statement the Miller Partnership said their design used “simple shapes and colour to make a strong and bold statement” that would come to be seen as “synonymous with the City of Aberdeen and with Aberdeen Football Club.”
Designed as a continuous bowl the structure is symmetrical but for a deliberate break to emphasise the principal entrance to the Arena.
A transparent polycarbonate roof has been designed to allow daylight to reach the pitch by night and to be lit red at night to act as a beacon by night.
