A Pulsating Translucent Shell

Considered one of the most modern stadiums in the world, the Allianz Arena premiered for the opening game of the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Today it is home to FC Bayern Munich, with more than 130,000 paid ticket holders. The stadium seats 66,000 fans and the exterior provides a cascade of red, white, and blue, but at the same time provides a somewhat transparent shell. An additional unique feature is how close the fans can get to the playing pitch, as there is no track or surface between the fans and the payers. Currently, Bayern is sharing a leadership position in the league as it just advanced to the semi-finals of the DFB Cup.

Love the lines on this. And against the blue sky, the white is beautiful.
