A
new football stadium is under
construction in the viilage
of Felcsút, a few kilometers
outsideofBudapest.Thevillage
is the hometown of PMViktorOrbanwho
isoneof the foundersof thePuskás Ferenc
FootballAcademy.
The main function of the sporting fa-
cilitywill be to house the football academy
dedicated to the training of the most tal-
ented junior footballers' of the country. It
will have a seating capacity of 3,500 and is
being built at a cost of US$17.5million.
However, this
is no ordinary
football stadium. It
is an architectural
masterpiece designed in the style of the
world-famous Hungarian Architect Imre
Makovecz ,but taking advantage of modern
constructionmethods.
Dynamic, exciting, unusual are just
someof thewords that describe the archi-
tecture of the new home stadium for the
Hungarian football club FC Felcsút. The
architects have recognized what the au-
dience expects from a game andmirrored
such expectations in the stadium’s excep-
tional design.
With the
high volume of
concrete sur-
faces involved,
they chose MEVA formwork solutions for
the 28,000 m² of walls, with thicknesses
ranging from 20 to 60 cm, that had to be
formed.
