The new soccer stadium in Disgyőr by Péter Pottyondy does not follow the typical and familiar ash-tray or jar design showing a positive mass outward and a closed shell inward. It is not repulsive, but attractive welcoming and receptive, the buildings shows openness all around its perimeter. The support system, the „skeleton” of the building appears characteristically, which in turn renders the whole facility constructive, and gives the exterior surfaces certain rhythm with natural generosity. Making a tour of the building, one can’t help noticing that the ruling basic structure and the secondary facade sub-systems sticking to it have a different character. Based on contrast, the homogeneous facade is not rhythmical even though divided by horizontal stripes, keeping its integrity despite the contrast, as it is organised on the same scale as the frame structure. The exterior night illumination is attractive, and is closely related to the building, as it follows its structural rhythm and scales. the spectacle of the interior is in harmony with the exterior. The considerations of generosity, the well-proportioned scales are not compromised in any of the details here. Nothing is overdesigned. In line with the scales, the materials selected are strong and characteristic – raw ferro-concrete is combined with metal sheets.
