NEXT WHAT'S NEW & OF NOTE

STADIUM
OF THE WORLD

(above and below) North London's Tottenham Hotspur Stadium sits at a 35-degree angle to
help the 17,500 spectators feel close to the action and features a food hall and microbrewery.

After much anticipation, it's
finally kickoff time for North
London's Tottenham Hotspur
Stadium.
Schemed by design firm Populous, the 62,062-seat stadium
redefines the idea of the sports
club. The stadium's fan area,
called the South Stand, sits at a
35-degree angle to make up to
17,500 spectators feel even closer
to the action. The space's fivestory-high glass atrium houses
The Market-a food hall and
microbrewery complete with a
213-foot (65-meter) bar that is the
longest in Europe.
But the clever ideas don't stop
with the amenities. The stadium
also boasts a fully retractable
turf, allowing the venue to
adapt to a range of sporting and
nonsporting events.
"It seems insane to have built
stadiums of this size that would
only be used for one team every
other week," Christopher Lee,
managing director of Populous,
told Dezeen. "[At Tottenham
Hotspur Stadium,] it was very
much about creating genuinely a
kind of civic building. To have the
community come in and use the
cafe or brewery or in the South
Stand, I think that's great."

Jutting out from the sea against a rocky, weather-beaten coastline
rests Under, whose doors opened to diners in March. As Europe's
first underwater restaurant, the 40-seat space is built around a
massive 36-foot (11-meter) wide and 11-foot (3.4 meter) tall window
that spans the building's submerged southern wall. From there, diners
can peek into the coast's wild, brackish waters where marine fauna
flourish just inches from Michelin star-quality dinner plates.
Building Under off Norway's southernmost point, Swedish design
firm Snøhetta had to create an environment that would be both open
and inviting while remaining resilient against the punishing North
Sea weather. When diners descend into the space, they'll find simple
oak-clad walls and ceiling panels covered in kelp-like textiles, all intended as a nod to the environment outside while providing a serene
atmosphere for diners within.
