The buildings design provides a natural sense of fluidity, easily approachable from its multiple staircases at all points of the stadium and the open transition from exterior to the interior, never really enclosing itself leaving all points exposed to the elements. A large focus of the concept incorporates the surrounding environment blending with the building, as reflected in the concave roof which is supported by a series of thin white columns, appearing like a forest of birch trees. Home field to the FC Girondins de Bordeaux, the 'Grande Stade de Bordeaux' will also host a variety of cultural events.
