Video: The full presentations of Manica-Cmr and Populous stadium designs

By Oliver Fisher -

The videos used by Manica-Sportium and Populous for the respective presentations of their stadium designs have now been made available to the public.

The two construction giants unveiled their renderings for the ‘nuovo San Siro’ at an event in Milano on Thursday morning.

Prior to the presentations, Milan president Paolo Scaroni and Inter CEO Alessandro Antonello revealed the reasons for leaving the current stadium.

The key information regarding the brief for the new stadium was then outlined, before Italian firm Manica showed their design, followed by American giants Populous.

Below, you can see the videos used by both companies plus the official statement of the club on each…

“‘The Rings of Milano’ by Manica/Sportium consists of two iconic rings, interlocked and set apart in perfect balance, symbolising the story of how two clubs, forever in opposition, and now united in their cause to preserve one of Milano’s most storied traditions.

“The stadium’s iconic linked rings accommodate both LED and architectural solutions for branding and team changeover between matches.

“The new Stadium of Milano is carefully integrated into a broader masterplan development that will revitalise and transform San Siro into a park and entertainment district for the people of Milano to experience year-round, preserving the original pitch’s location and reimagining it as a gift to the community for all to enjoy.”

“‘The Cathedral’ by Populous draws inspiration from two of Milano’s most iconic buildings; the Duomo and the Galleria. In fact, a sunlit galleria encircles the stadium enveloped by an elegant glass façade.

“The Cathedral has been designed to create a unique home for the fans and supporters with bespoke installations. The stadium is designed to be the most sustainable in Europe: the galleria is naturally cooled and passively heated, photovoltaic panels line the stadium roof, and all rainwater is collected from the roof and reused. The stadium is surrounded by 22 acres of green space, which reduce water runoff.”
