"Aviva Stadium"

The challenge for Scott Tallon Walker who were appointed joint architects with HOK SVE (Populous) was the creation of the new international stadium for rugby and soccer at the site of the existing Lansdowne Road Stadium, Dublin, worthy of the history attached to the oldest international rugby ground in the world. The design includes the required 50,000 seating capacity and all the facilities expected in a modern stadium, and all within the existing restricted footprint.
