News: work has started on a football stadium in Bordeaux, France, by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron.
A rectangular white roof will cover the stadium, supported by a forest of slim white columns.
The structure is expected to be completed in 2015 ready to host matches during the Euro 2016 football championship.
Last week construction began on an outdoor bathing lake in Riehen, Switzerland, also by Herzog & de Meuron.
