Top 5 Contemporary Stadiums Around The World

Stadiums are one of the most critical architecture developments. They have to have a huge seating capacity and at the same time each of the seat must give a clear view of the ground. While these stadiums have raised the bar of a high profile stadium, they are aesthetic architecture marvels too.

Take at a look at the world’s top five architectural marvel stadiums:

1) Bird Nest stadium, in Beijing China


The Bird Nest stadium, in Beijing has a capacity of 80000. This stadium is more attractive than just for the massive seating space. It was the host of Beijing Olympics 2008. But the real reason for it to come first in this list is the dome structure of the stadium. The stadium has a dome what looks like a bird’s news made of steel and Chinese ceramics.

It is the place for many rugby matches which is the main sports for people from New Zealand.

5) Michigan Stadium in Michigan
