New Bolívar Stadium in La Paz (Bolivia)
· November 22, 2021
Home to Club Bolívar, the brand new stadium’s design proposed by L35 was selected through an international competition arranged by the club and its partner City Football Group.
Placed in the middle of La Paz’s historical neighbourhood of Tembladerani, the new stadium rises on the same grounds as the former one, increasing its seating capacity up to 20.000 seats.
It is the prominent concrete structure that plays a major role in the configuration of the new stadium. The massive faceted pilars support the upper levels above the lateral stand whereas it contains the vertical connections.
This naked structure, arranged in a constant rythm of voids and mass is enough to display a powerful image, which outstands in the landscape of La Paz while at the same time blends in with its surroundings.
