One of The World´s Oddest Stadium Designs
It has got to the point that a lot of arenas in the UK are so uniform it seems as though the owners bought a stadium kit from Argos. Curious about stadiums in other countries, we set off on a power search round the world of the internet and found a number of strange stadiums, but wanted to mention this one below.
Kaohsiung Stadium – Taiwan
We chose The World Games Stadium in Taiwan because of the unusual stadium power – solar panels. With 14,155 square metres of specially design roof panels, the stadium can harness 1.4 GWh of electricity a year – which also generates enough power to provide for 80 per cent of the surrounding neighbourhood.
We love that most of the power that the World Games Stadium uses cares for the environement, and has such a special design. It has a capacity of 55,000 people and holds events such as rugby or football or world games.
Close runners up of our search in finding our oddest stadiums were The Allianz Arena in Germany, the Marina Bay Floating Stadium in Singapore, the Beijing National Aquatics Center, The Burj Al Arab Hotel Helipad, and the Estadio Municipal de Braga in Portugal.
