Spatial Study PROGRAM

The building’s constitution makes it the Zagrađe Olympic Center’s main sporting facility. The polyvalent stadium seats up to 25,000 spectators and potentially twice as many if Volujak’s slope is used as a natural grandstand. The stadium’s silhouette conforms to Zagrađe’s contours with its terraced drywall grandstand evoking cascading Dalmatian vineyards.
