Rovaniemi Sports Arena RAILO
An architectural competition was held in 2012 for the new spectator stand and multi-purpose building, won by APRT with its entry Railo. Once fully completed, the design will incorporate the new sculptural stand and boulder-shaped residential and official buildings with a crevasse-like roadway winding between them. The stand has a very different look depending on the direction from which it is viewed. The best view of the spectator stand is from a distance: a large-scale, statuesque sports arena.
