stadium is located between La Sierra Madre and the last live river in
Monterrey, in a park reserve area. The
landscape project involves the design of the main concourse of the stadium
(pedestrian spaces with urban furniture, water features and trees, leading to
the stadium doors) and all the surrounding parking space and green areas of the
property. The delicate ecosystem in
which the building is located, allowed the proposal of a special design of the parking lot, where
it becomes a big stormawater treatment machine for detention, infiltration and
filtration of stormwater into
vegetated raingardens. All the parking spaces will be planted with
lawn over grasspave plastic grid,
and will lead the sheets of water from the concrete streets into the interconected raingardens .
lot will become a woodland with more than 1 thousand native trees. The planting
strategy mixes lines of native perennial oaks (mountain ecosystem) with lines
of native sycamore trees (river ecosystem), which will give the wooded parking
space a unique character of changing color and foliage.
The stadium park will remain open during the
week for public access, and it will be connected to the river linear park
pathway system. Digital art and video
mapping will be projected on the stadium south and north facades several nights
a week as a cultural amenity for the city and visitors.
