Stadium and Arena Design 2nd Edition highlights the multidisciplinary approach needed to create and run stadia, showing how each of the specialists involved have essential roles to play. International case studies are used to demonstrate how all these skills are brought together in stadium design best practice, to ultimately benefit the client, the performers, and the spectators. Stadium and Arena Design is an important reference for all construction professionals and practitioners involved in the design, construction and evaluation of stadiums internationally.

About the Author:

Poet and critic Peter Culley has lived in Nanaimo since 1972. He is the author of The Climax Forest. His extensive writing on such artists as Stan Douglas, Roy Arden, Kelly Wood, and Geoffrey Farmer have made him one of the foremost critics of the burgeoning Vancouver art worlds.

Review:

Ten years after publication of their book Stadium Engineering, Culley and Pascoe have updated the multidisciplinary content to cover current major sports facility design and the increasing demand for sustainability. The book now starts with an interesting historical presentation of stadium and arena engineering from the eighth century to the most recent international venues. The chapters about crowd circulation and security have been fully reconsidered, and chapters added on computerised design, concrete technology, natural and artificial pitches and retractable roofs. Three new case studies are analysed and supported by original data, these being the Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, Wimbledon Centre Court in the UK and Beijing National Stadium in China. Not covered, however, are financial planning or lessons learned from recent world cup venue projects. Overall, the book is easy to read, even for non-specialists. The new version will no doubt be welcomed by professionals and practitioners involved in arena construction. It will also be inspirational for any civil engineer interested in understanding how to design and build these complex, landmark facilities. --Philippe Bouillard, Uni Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium in journal Civil Engineering Vol 169 Issue CE2 May 2016

For every engineer the concept of designing a large-scale stadium is both an enormous honour and a major headache because of the lack of guidance available. Modern stadia are the most complex of engineering challenges, with a multitude of different regulations to meet in countries around the world, involving close collaboration between all disciplines in order to achieve the ultimate goal. Thanks to Rod Sheard, Geraint John and Ben Vickery, who wrote the book Stadia: A Design and Development Guide, architects have a tremendous stadium design guide all in one concise book. However, the complex issues that face the many engineering disciplines involved in stadium design have not been so clearly explained for engineers; but this is about to change. The new book edited by Culley and Pascoe is a gold mine of information, addressing the many issues involved in the engineering design of stadia. The first edition focused on the use of steel in the design of stadia and long-span structures; that edition continues to provide sound advice and guidance to structural engineers, for which the reviewer is still proud to have been a contributor. So it was great to discover that this second edition has taken a major step change and, rather than being an update of the first, it has brought in a host of new contributors to expand the breadth of engineering considerations that face the designers of stadia today. This edition provides a history of stadia and major sports venues from the Greeks and Romans through to modern times, including the amazing construction projects in America and around the world created for major Olympics and other world events. The book covers the major issues of site selection, transport planning, security, and blast and fire engineering. It provides guidance on the use of the major structural materials used in stadia steel, concrete and the advantages of precast concrete, as well as stainless steel and aluminium. The book goes on to consider the tremendous benefits that engineering software packages provide in determining the likely environmental conditions within the events bowl for spectators and players, such as temperature, acoustics and lighting levels, which become particularly relevant when closing roofs are required. This reviewer s only disappointment with the book is that many of the graphics are too small and in black and white, which gives the impression that the volume has been produced to a tight budget. Please do not be fooled by the graphics, the quality of the written contributions page after page is the best available today. We live at a time when, as stadium designers, we must have a thorough knowledge of all the major new projects just created or under construction worldwide. Culley and Pascoe have done all the homework and hard work for us with this book. There is no other design guide that provides the depth of detail and guidance relating to the engineering of stadia today. It is now a must have technical guide for engineers who want to understand all aspects of stadium design in the UK. --ICE Journal Structures and Buildings dx.doi.org/10.1680/jstbu.16.00051 Mike Otlet
