Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland, designed as a result of collaboration between global architects Populous and Dublin based architects, Scott Tallon Walker has been awarded a prize in the category of ‘The Architecture Award - Leisure & Hospitality’ at the International Property Awards 2010.The form of the stadium developed as a response to the site conditions and expresses the several limitations that the site context placed on the project, while also providing optimal sight-lines for spectators and proximity to the pitch. The form allows for the highest tiers and hence the maximum number of spectators to be on the half way lines yet allows the building to sweep down to a single tier at the North end allowing daylight into the adjacent residential gardens and opening up the stadium bowl to the city.
The challenge for Scott Tallon Walker who were appointed joint architects with HOK SVE (Populous) was the creation of the new international stadium for rugby and soccer at the site of the existing Lansdowne Road Stadium, Dublin, worthy of the history attached to the oldest international rugby ground in the world. The design includes the required 50,000 seating capacity and all the facilities expected in a modern stadium, and all within the existing restricted footprint.
