The choice for Brazil as host country of World Cup 2014, and the automatic assurance that Maracanã Stadium would be the stage” of the final match (even before the official definition), were the departing points of the need for preparing a project that modernized and preserved the renowned stadium.

A STADIUM TO THE CITY in Belo Horizonte, Brazil by BCMF Arquitetos

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Article source: BCMF Arquitetos


Belo Horizonte. A modernist building in a modernist landscape.

Mineirão Stadium and Pampulha neighborhood were conceived during the 40´s, at the beginning of the structuralist fever that would conduct the economic policies of Brazil during the following decades. Not by coincidence, Pampulha´s mentor was Juscelino Kubitschek, then mayor of the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, who granted commissions to vanguard professionals such as young Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx to capture the essence of his modern envisions. Quite a successful essay for his Brasilia from 1960.
