Sport is a massive contributor to Australian life, national pride and the economy. Stadiums are at the centre of sports culture. In Australia, these venues are where mateship and sport are channelled. With our rapidly changing world, these stadiums need revision. Everything from the seating to the sponsorships and the overall spectator experience must be considered. 


In this unit, students will explore existing problems within the stadium sphere, including accessibility issues, staffing shortages, excess energy consumption and waste. From here, students will utilise user-centred design principles by identifying the diverse users of a stadium, including fans, athletes, staff, and vendors, and learning about their needs, wants and frustrations. By using user-centred design principles and understanding the diverse needs of stadium users, students will be able to create a stadium redesign that addresses existing problems and improves the overall user experience.


Students will learn and research innovative stadiums from around the world to find inspiration for their own redesigns and discover new and creative solutions to common stadium problems. They will analyze these stadiums and their features, focusing on what makes them unique and successful, and how these features can be adapted and incorporated into their own redesigns. This will involve studying different stadium designs, layouts and technologies. Finally, students will pitch their redesigned stadium, their innovative ideas for sponsorship and branding, and their reinvention of the spectator experience.
