This architectural monograph explores the transformation of England’s national football stadium into the world’s most versatile and exciting arena.
Since its inception in 1923, Wembley Stadium has been synonymous with great football, sold-out concerts, and thrilling events. Its rebuilding — completed in 2007 by world-renowned architects Foster + Partners — was one of the most talked-about architectural events of the decade. This book details the planning and reconstruction of the new Wembley, which features a retractable roof supported by an iconic arch, exploring all aspects of the design process, with informative texts and numerous photographs, original sketches, and drawings.
