Populous already has planning for city centre arena
Zaha Hadid Architects has revealed its proposals for a site in the centre of Bristol that already has planning consent for a £123m arena designed by Populous.
The architect was hired by Legal & General which has been eyeing the five-acre site next to Temple Meads station, now known as Temple Island.
The council-owned site, previously Arena Island, was reserved for a major music and conference centre by former RIBA president George Ferguson when he was mayor of Bristol. He argued the city lacked a venue of sufficient size to attract international acts.
