With sports stadiums becoming so grand, the trend of giving them a minimalistic interpretation continues, this time with Portuguese artist André Chiote taking a stab at eight different European and South American venues.

While we’ve already seen plenty in minimalistic designs, especially for MLB stadiums (part 1, part 2), Chiote gives us both well-known venues such as China’s Bird’s Nest and Germany’s Allianz Arena, and a lesser-known stadium in Brazil and London’s Olympic shooting venue. Chiote must have a thing for Zaha Hadid designs, offering us her Austrian ski jump venue and two choices from the London Aquatics Center.
