Cox Architecture is delighted to acknowledge the success of AAMI Park Stadium, Melbourne in receiving the “World’s Most Iconic and Culturally Significant Stadium” Award at the Stadium World Congress 2012 in Doha. Cox Architecture and Arup were the architects and engineers for the development of this ground breaking stadium that has become a symbol of Melbourne’s sporting prowess.
“We are honoured to have designed this world breaking stadium that not only was recognised in Victoria as the recipient of the Victorian Architecture Medal in 2011 but has now been recognised internationally as an exemplar stadium” stated Patrick Ness, Design Director of Cox Architecture.
AAMI Park completed in 2010 is the latest in the sporting icons of Melbourne. The 31,000 seat venue has become a landmark for all sporting fans in Melbourne and has become home to the Melbourne Storm, Melbourne Heart and the Melbourne Victory. The unique design has become the latest world stadium icon showing how these buildings can be culturally significant places to the communities they serve.
Cox Architecture is one of Australia’s leading Sports Architects and are currently designing Adelaide Oval redevelopment, Perth Rectangular Stadium redevelopment, renovation of the Southern Stand at the MCG, Manuka Oval in Canberra and the new Northern Stand at the SCG.
