FC Barcelona reveal exciting details of Spotify Camp Nou project

FC Barcelona have presented redevelopment plans for the Spotify Camp Nou to the Architects’ Association of Catalonia (COAC) at an organised event on Monday, March 4.

Barça vice-president Elena Fort, the head of the technical office of Espai Barça, Lluís Moya, and members of the project team, presented the future plans for the stadium and outlined the progress made on the project so far.

Espai Barça is the name for the overall revamp of FC Barcelona’s sporting infrastructure, which includes the renovation of the club’s training and commercial facilities.

“Spreading the word about the project” – FC Barcelona collaborate with COAC

In a club statement, FC Barcelona said: “The meeting was also the starting point of a series of visits that the Club has organised in collaboration with the COAC to the Spotify Camp Nou site. This is part of Barça's goal of spreading the word about the project and making it known, in this case among registered architects, the work that is being done by FC Barcelona in the district of Courts is set to become an architectural benchmark for the city and for the world.”

What happened in the meeting?

The dean of the COAC, Guim Costa i Calsamiglia, began the meeting by emphasising the importance of the stadium project to the city. Elena Fort then discussed how the redevelopment project will help to sustain the future of the club in the coming decades.

Moya then discussed the technical and architectural aspects of the project, going into detail about how sustainability has been factored in at every stage of the works. This included the reuse of concrete and steel from the old facility to be used in the construction of the new stadium.

The project will feature 220,000 m2 of built-up area, 75,000 m2 of footprint, and rise 40 metres above ground level, according to Moya. FC Barcelona also included in their statement: “The mobility of almost 105,000 spectators also needs to be factored in, and a total of 20,000 visitors a day will be visiting the second most important museum in the country.”
