Housing For Homeless in Empty Brazilian Stadium’s
In these hypothetical project entitled ”Casa Futebol“, Architects Axel de Stampa and Sylvain Macaux have proposed a reappropriation of Brazil’s World Cup venues by inserting housing units of approximately 105 square meters into the existing structures. It is not a question of denying the interest of Brazilians people for the soccer, otherwise of proposing an alternative in the deficit of housing. According to the project’s website.
Stadiums will continue to be used, receiving soccer matches, a part of the ganancies of which can finance the construction and the maintenance of the houses. It is thus a question of replacing a part of the sets by prefabricated housing and of colonizing the outside facade.
It is interesting in this case that events will continue to happen in the stadium, and that the revenue from those events will be used to fund the housing.
