Designed by HOK and Arquitectonica, the new MLS stadium features a curvilinear facade, ample public plazas, embedded technology and connectivity to the adjacent 58-acre public park.
Excerpted from CLAD:
Arquitectonica and HOK have developed plans for a 26,000-seat stadium and mixed-use complex for David Beckham’s Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise Inter Miami CF.
The Miami Freedom Park and Soccer Village development will, naturally, be centered around the stadium itself.
Designs show a bowl-style stadium with seating right around its interior. Tiered stands along the length of the pitch make way for a large single-tier stand at one end and apparent internal concourses at the other. Hospitality sections appear to feature on all sides of the pitch and there is terracing built high up into the stadium’s undulating roofline.
Big screens in each corner are shaped by the flow of the seating and there are screens built into the exterior facade that could be used for events or showing games to people outside the ground. The proposed development also includes a variety of additional leisure and commercial elements.
Part of the surrounding area will become a public park, with 11 football fields proposed for community use. There will also be a hotel, restaurants and shops. The City of Miami gave its support to the Freedom Park and Soccer Village project last year. The development is expected to be ready for use in 2022.
