Pedro Pedrossiam stadium project, nicknamed Morenão, for the 2014 World Cup. It is the largest university stadium in Latin America. Is located within the campus of the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul (UFMS).

To meet FIFA standards and the needs of a modern equipment, a new building was designed to replace the old. The main idea is to design a sustaintable arena that values the relation which the enviroment in whit it is set - the Pantanal wetland region. The entire facade is made out of wood that was produced through ‘forest management’. The construction system is innovative, favouring the use of lightweight materials that do not require the use of cranes to assemble the cover bringing big savings in material inputs.
