I was entertained by the Spurs under eighteens football team on Sunday, 24th March 2019 in the new Spurs Stadium in Tottenham, London. This contemporary architectural design is a significant impact on the cityscape in the London Borough of Haringey. As you walk around Tottenham you will notice that there are quite a few historical buildings that are still remaining and the question is how this structure fits in.
Remove all colours and examine the shape and the curves. If you are visiting Tottenham take a train or bus to White Hart Lane and walk around it.
On a sunny day this is how the Spurs stadium shows up. It mimics the blue of the sky which is cropped from the image below.
On a cloudy day the structure shows up in light differently.
If you step back and have a look at the other current structures in Tottenham the question that is to be asked is will the building fit in?
The view from the inside looking out across London shows that the structure was simply keeping up with the changing cityscape of London.
If you are here to watch football you will be more interested off how it looks on the inside and not too concerned about what is going on outside.
Where can you get a drink? The brass colouring stands out within the stadium.
This is how it looks when you get a drink outside.
And most important of all there is a good game of football.
The old structure was good for the needs of the 20th century and blended in with the existing buildings.
For the 21st century something new was required.
The finished product sits within the existing environment as a prominent landmark.
The remaining images shows the work to build the new stadium, images of the old stadium, the first match on Sunday and the first match on Saturday in March 2019. Welcome home.
The sky is the limit for the progress of Spurs!
