Moses Mabhida Stadium Kirigami Paper Model

Moses Mabhida Stadium Kirigami Paper Model

By now, many of you have already seen all the stadiums of South Africa’s World Cup. And many of you may agree with me on this: Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban is the most beautiful stadium of the World Cup. Designed by gmp architekten, Theunissen Jankowitz Durban, Ambro-Afrique Consultants, Osmond Lange Architects & Planners, NSM Designs, and Mthulisi Msimang, this venue will host one of the semi-finals on July 7.

So I was quite excited when the people at Paper Landmarks released a stylized kirigami (cut-and-fold) model of the stadium. And the best thing of all, you can download the kirigami template right here. All you need is 14 sheets of 250-300 gsm paper (no glue!). Tell us if you did!
