The last World Cup broke my heart due to some of the unpredictable results, so I'll be waiting for the next event to cheer on.
Anyway, people and places are getting ready for Euro 2016, including Bordeaux with Herzog & de Meuron's new design. It's planned to be completed on 2015.
Herzog & de Meuron
Notes from the designer, from Dezeen:
At once dense and light, this structure creates an evanescent rectangular volume from which emerges the sculpted and organic outline of the bowl.
In its specificity, this architectural concept confers a strong and unparalleled identity to the new Bordeaux stadium. Well anchored to its site, this elegant and diaphanous volume looks out onto the grand landscape its transparency revealing all the energy and activities which will fill this new symbol of the city of Bordeaux’s dynamism.
