In April Socrates Architects took part in a public competition to design the entrance gates for Chelsea Football Club’s new 60,000 seat Stamford bridge stadium.

The club received more than 500 hundred high quality entries from all over the world and after a long selection process Socrates Architects have recently been informed that they have been shortlisted amongst 5 others as the potential winner.

This shortlist has been chosen by a special Committee, appointed by the Chelsea Football Club, to oversee the competition. This Committee is Chaired by architect Stefan Marbach, Partner at Herzog & de Meuron Architects, who has led the design team behind the Stamford Bridge redevelopment.

Socrates Architects’ competition entry was unique as the design for the stadium’s entrance gates was articulated from a large abstract painting he produced which was derived and abstracted from the renowned Chelsea F.C. logo. The painting encapsulates the spirit and essence of Chelsea football club and what the logo “The Lion Rampant” represents – the abstract oil painting 5ft x 5ft is entitled – “A Beast in Fighting Attitude”.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.

The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen.
