Budapest Sport Arena

A sports UFO. Since 2003, a spaceship arena has been the second-largest building in Budapest “Use days” is the magic word for today’s successful stadium concepts. The French Bouygues Group demonstrates what that means in practice with the Budapest Sport Arena, completed in 2003.World figure skating and indoor athletics championships as
well as fairs, congresses and concerts are all on the agenda. At 26,000 m2, the futuristic indoor stadium is one of Europe’s largest sports halls. The shimmering silvery giant oval with a media-friendly spaceship decor was designed by Büro Közti in Budapest. A modular design with adjustable grandstands can be adapted to accommodate
between 7,000 and 12,500 spectators. DORMA glass fittings and DORMA folding and automatic sliding partitions guarantee a pleasant, freely adaptable ambience. The
extensive use of DORMA door and security technology further underlines the high constructional standards applied in project implementation. DORMA supplied products from all five divisions.
