A new football stadium to be built in London, but designed by US firm KSS, is seeking approval from the local council.

The 56,000-seat stadium will be built for the North London Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

London practice Make Architects have worked on the master plan while US firm Martha Schwartz Partners provided landscape design services.

The proposal features a 63-row single tier stand, museum, public square, hotel, supermarket, and 434 residential flats.

The acoustics are planted in the bowl type design with flowing lines and an undulating roof.

The public square houses two amphitheatres and faces the square. There will also be a new museum for the Football Club.

Heritage groups have criticised the proposed development as the stadium will be built after demolishing a series of historical buildings.
