FCBStudios appointed for new Bristol ArenaFCBStudios appointed for new Bristol Arena
FCBStudios are delighted to have been appointed for the new Bristol Island Arena project with Populous, Buro Happold and sound specialists Vanguardia.
Peter Clegg said:“Framed by the railway and the River Avon, the Arena has been designed to reflect the proud history and heritage of the city of Bristol, creating an iconic new form within the City, which is respectful and responsive to its unique location. While the masonry plinth base will reflect the surrounding buildings, the beautiful crystalline upper form will allow the arena to continually adapt to mirror the changing face and form of the City”.
The Bristol Arena will be a new multipurpose 12,000 capacity performance venue, a ‘Colosseum’ for Bristol, located close to Temple Meads station on Arena Island, the former diesel depot site.
