The two designs that are currently competing to land the project to build the new San Siro have been leaked by il Corriere dello Sport.
Paolo Scaroni – Milan’s president – spoke to ANSA after a meeting on Tuesday and essentially confirmed that the plan is to go full steam ahead with the new development.
Thursday’s edition of il Corriere di Milano – as cited by MilanNews.it – then offered a hint at what the two competing designs for the ‘nuovo San Siro’ look like.
They described it as a ‘cathedral versus wedding rings’, with the design from American giants Populous featuring glass spires and lots of light, while the Italian firm Manica-Cmr have a design featuring two rings that cross over.
Below, a tweet from @marifcinter – who cites CorSport – shows a rough idea of the two competing designs.
