Barcelona have unveiled the first images of how their famous home is set to look ahead of a four-year revamp with work starting next summer.
The European champions announced Japanese architects Nikken Sekkei and Catalan studio Pascual i Ausio Arquitectes as the winner of the tender for the design of the upgraded stadium on Tuesday.

It is the first step towards the opening of a 105,000-capacity Nou Camp in 2021, with concept imagery revealed for the project which is expected to cost €600million (£465m).

Barca will not be required to move out of the Nou Camp during the redevelopment that will complement the New Palau Blaugrana arena that houses their basketball team and the Mini Estadi, home for Barcelona B.

The club said in a statement: ‘The Nikken Sekkei + Pascual i Ausio Arquitectes proposal stands out for being open, elegant, serene, timeless Mediterranean and democratic.’

‘It is also notable for its relationship with the environment, providing depth, creating shadows and making members the stars of the facade and of the open area at all times.’

‘The proposal presents a very subtle attempt to intervene in the environment to facilitate circulation and achieve diverse urban usage in the Barca Campus and guarantees a clear and safe construction.’

‘In short, it is a unique solution, reproducing the characteristic vision of the grandstand and canopy, from the inside out, a silent and powerful tribute to the stadium built by Francesc Mitjans in 1957.’

The upgrade is expected to be financed partly by allowing a sponsor’s name for the stadium, similar to the deal that Arsenal have with Emirates for their Emirates Stadium home.’
