US Stadium Model Can Accommodate 1 Million Audiences

American sculptor Paul Pfeiffer has just caught the attention of world sports fans when he launched a stadium model that can accommodate 1 million spectators.

‘Vitruvian Experiments’ is a model of a stadium made by a sculptor born in Hawaii (USA) and is on display here. Pfeiffer said he is determined to make this 1 million audience model a reality. This will be an extremely impressive and unique project.

The 54-year-old American sculptor designed the ‘Vitruvian Experiments’ inspired by the Sydney Olympic Stadium (Australia) inaugurated in 1999 for the 2000 Olympic Games. And for this reason, he decided to give birth to a model with ambitious ideas about the biggest stadium ever! It is a 3-meter-high sculpture designed with a grand audience of 1 million seats. It can be seen that the magnificence and aesthetics of this model are enormous, which can make an impression at first sight. What a bold and remarkable idea!

So far, the largest stadium in the world is Rungrado 1st of May in Pyongyang, North Korea. The country has announced that the stadium has a capacity of 150,000 people but actually has about 114,000 seats. Second place is the Barcelona Camp Nou Camp (Spain) with a capacity of over 99,354 people, followed by Estadio Azteca in Mexico (95,500 seats), Azadi (Tehran, Iran – 95,225 seats) and Soccer City ( Johannesburg, South Africa – 94,736 seats).

If the idea of ‘Vitruvian Experiments‘ comes true, this will be a terrible stadium. Because the largest stadium in the world today has not even reached the number of 200,000 people. Implementing this idea is unthinkable for the time being. However, we can absolutely hope it will be an interesting target for the great ambitions of world sports and cannot be done. Therefore, time will prove Mr. Pfeiffer’s idea of a 1-million-man stadium capacity. Will there be a stadium capable of welcoming so many spectators?
