In June and July of 2010, the eyes of the world turned to South Africa, as it became the first African nation to host the FIFA World Cup. Three of the ten stadiums envisaged for this international spectacle were planned and realized by German architectural firm Von Gerkan, Marg und Partner in conjunction with the engineers Schlaich Bergermann und Partner. Their dramatic sense of gesture and luminous glow have placed these stadiums among the most beautiful contemporary sports architecture around the globe. 3 Stadia 2010 presents these three stadiums--with their unique challenges and triumphs--through stories and photographs from throughout their development process. Calling on a range of voices from the world of architecture, the publication describes how these new landmarks have transformed the South African coastal towns of Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town into architectonic locations of the African dream.
