Estádio Municipal de Paredes in Mouriz, Portugal by Spaceworkers

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Article source: Spaceworkers

Countering a trend of the current stadium, enclosing its green area inside, was what motivated us in finding this solution. The idea of “giving back” an acre of green space to the town was the main motto for this project. A solid block, which levitates into the landscape. A building which you can see and lets those who pass by see it, too. An open space to the city where football is the main entertaining agent.
