Artist's Description

From Austadiums

Melbourne’s new 31,500-seat state-of-the-art Rectangular Stadium at Olympic Park is nearing completion, with the Government recently announcing that an International Rugby League test match on ANZAC Day between Australia and New Zealand will officially open the stadium on 7th May 2010…

The stadium has been designed with a unique and dynamic form that is innovative and memorable, a first for Melbourne and the world. It will be built utilising and showcasing the wealth of skills and expertise in Australia. At the heart of the design is the Bioframe, a lightweight steel design based on the inherent structural efficiencies of the dome. This uses 50% less steel than a typical cantilever roof structure. This structure is then skinned in a triangular panelised façade that can be made up with a combination of glass, metal and louvers, as well as potential for photovoltaic cells. Together, the Bioframe and the skin form a highly sculptural, non industrial object. A new image for a stadium that moves away from industrial aesthetic to sculptural design…

The official name of the new stadium is currently unknown with a naming rights sponsor likely to be found before the opening. In the meantime, it’s commonly referred to simply as the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium.
