Bordeaux Gets a Stadium Upgrade


Light, bright, and thoroughly modern, the new Bordeaux Stadium sets the bar high for future buildings of its type. Far from the bulky facades of its more clunky counterparts, the Stadium--designed by Herzog & De Meuron--creates an illusion of comparative levity, with a succession of narrow pilings for support and a nearly all-white color scheme to keep things open. The result is a pristine, transparent, and absolutely gorgeous bit of architecture ready to play host to 42,000 shouting, screaming, and otherwise indecorous football fans. Let the games begin.
