Auckland’s Eden Park features in green design blog Inhabitat which describes the renovation of the stadium for the 211 World Rugby Cup. “For a century Eden Park has been the epicentre of rugby and cricket for New Zealand, making it the ideal venue for the country to host the Cup. Eden Park is located in a historic neighbourhood of Auckland, and with the construction of a new and much larger stadium many were concerned about the impact the large project would have on their daily lives. Populous, who was assisted in the design by local architects Jasmax, were active in creating a design that was sensitive to its residential neighbours. Trees and plants replaced concrete as a way to bring the stadiums development down to the level of the neighbourhood. An acoustic barrier on the eastern side of the stadium was designed to contain the noise spill-over into the neighbourhood during sporting events.”
