IMAGES: Barcelona FC 'stadium at sea' plans

Plans for a 150,000-seater football stadium just off the coast of Barcelona have been published by a Catalan architect.

Emili Vidal proposed building the huge stadium for Barcelona Football Club on an artificial island linked to the city by a bridge.

The European champions commissioned Norman Foster in 2007 to come up with a re-structure for the stadium. But critics of his plan to expand capacity by 10,000 said it did not solve capacity issues.
