Italian architectural firm Schiattarella Associati has been awarded the contract to renovate King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, reports Construction Week.
The contract, which was awarded by the country’s General Authority of Sports, will see the refurbishment of a section of the stadium that seats approximately 50,000 spectators. In the words of the architectural firm, “the need to renovate King Fahd Stadium must necessarily consider the architectural high quality of the existing building. The laid-out series of rib vaults covering the stadium has a high iconographical value and already are benchmark for Riyadh’s urban landscape.”
