Drawing on case studies – including the recently-opened, new grandstand at Ireland’s famed Curragh Racecouse and the under design new Stadium for Bath – our speakers from Grimshaw examine how design can unlock both matchday and non-matchday opportunites.

The Curragh plains are one of Europe’s oldest natural grasslands frame Ireland’s preeminent racecourse, the Curragh, which leads the region’s prestigious reputation for breeding and racing thoroughbred bloodstock.
