From the architect. This Project tries to harmonize the natural slope of the ground with the big leveled platform of the sport field with 9,000 sqm.

The best solution was to place this platform in an intermediate level, allowing to create a floor below the soccer field where all the facilities are located and to use the ground outside to create a garden which kind of closes the outside space.

Colour was used as an attempt to achieve this plasticity and character that reinforce the idea of mass, a heavy mineral mass that was almost sculpted by a knife. This static mass is the scenery where the players move with outstanding Dynamics.

beautiful work, the puritan language gives it a sense of universality and lends its beauty to the whatever surrounds it. african cities could use some like this

Very well done. A good example of tasteful Portuguese architecture.

10 out of 10.

It's a beautiful project, very minimal, very modern, very 'Portugal' with a dynamic element to it. Pitty the pics are of such small size :-)
