Tampere Deck and Central Arena
NCC Welcomes Studio Daniel Libeskind to its Design Team
Tampere, Finland (June 23, 2010) NCC Property Development today announced that Daniel Libeskind will be called upon to lead the design of the new Central Arena in the city of Tampere, Finland. Studio Daniel Libeskind will take over as lead architect, which involves re-defining the original concept as well as designing the major buildings and multi-use arena.
NCC Property Development invited Studio Daniel Libeskind to participate in this project after investing in the major project planning and technical solutions over the past few years, now seeking a more refined architectural concept. The design will maximize external views, which will add value to both users of the facilities and to the people in the surrounding areas. The city plan is slated to go forward in Spring 2011.
“This project is so important for the image of Tampere City that this kind of investment is justified,” comments Tero Estovirta, head of NCC Property Development in Tampere.
“What a fantastic opportunity to work in Tampere on an urban scale,” remarks Daniel Libeskind. “Given the extraordinary history of modern architecture in Finland it is a particular challenge and opportunity to extend that tradition into the 21st century.”
