International architectural practice Populous has unveiled the exterior design of a new 13,500-seat sports arena in Leeds, UK.

The venue features a honeycombed design inspired by voronoi, a mathematical algorithm comprised of cellular shapes that are made visible on certain approaches to the proposed arena.

The sustainable scheme will incorporate many energy and water-efficient features in the design.

The arena received outline planning permission from Leeds City Council earlier this year.

Work is scheduled to begin later this year and will complete in 2012, according to regen.net.
