The challenges posed by climate change were outlined in Chapter 1. In this chapter, the topic of sustainability and how it should be applied to stadium design is looked at in more detail, including the economic and social aspects of sustainability.
The importance of accessibility in stadium design is then discussed.
Finally, the topic of future-proofing, i.e. how stadiums can be designed to grow in the future, is addressed. This also covers the concept of event overlay, which facilitates the transformation of stadiums for specific tournaments or events.
