Architects: HOK, TAC Arquitectes
Completion expected: 2020

AE Interest: “The New Palau Blaugrana, which will have a capacity of 12,000 for sporting events and 12,500 for social and cultural events, is a key component of a broader project to improve FC Barcelona’s facilities, including a major renovation of the Camp Nou stadium, in creating the Espai Barça sports district. Construction on the new Palau Blaugrana is expected to begin during the 2017/2018 FC Barcelona basketball season and finish during the 2019/2020 season. It will replace the 7,500-seat Palau Blaugrana, which opened in 1971.”
