Figueirense Futebol Clube
Built Up Area: 
72. 000 m2

Stadium project for the 2014 World Cup. This stadium belongs to Figueirense, one of the greatest football teams of the south of Brazil. One peculiarity is that it is located in the heart of the city, in mainland, in a populated neighborhood and easily accessible.

A new multipurpose and modern building, which meets the requirements of FIFA, would have to be constructed to substitute the old one. The project also embraces a plaza around the stadium and a hotel and gymnasium nearby. The main challenge was to design a stadium for 42.000 people in a small site - a 40k stadium footprint area was larger than the area of the plot.
