Sunshine Coast Stadium upgrade

Good morning to all of my followers, and happy new year to you all. I hope you all enjoyed your breaks.

Today I present the proposal for the upgrade of the Sunshine Coast Stadium. Work is ongoing on the site at the moment, building three new 8.5m tall hills around the pitch. This is showing off my (basic) interpretation of those plans. Coming soon on my blog is a proposal for further upgrade on the site, turning it into a seated venue. This is far from a real proposal - just demonstrating how it works.

A view from the sixth row of the grandstand - really shows off how high those hills are

A view from the east of the venue at 2m elevation. One of the common criticisms of the venue is the strong easterly breeze that blows across the pitch. These hills will help immensely to reduce the effect of that for both players and spectators.
