Codina and the Ferencváros Stadium of Budapest
Codina actively participated in the execution of the new FTC Stadium in Budapest. Codina manufactured approximately 9000m2 of stainless steel mesh as the stadium’s cladding. The mesh chosen was Eiffel-40100 model. Special panels suit this particular building geometry. The facade meshes dress the new building with spectacular light effects.
The stadium is a model of avant-garde architecture, a fact largely due to the use of Codina’s stainless steel wire meshes as facade cladding. This event will give visibility to an innovative building that is a reference in contemporary architecture.
