Just like a shot – meant to be gulped down in an instant and that offers a burst of flavours to the palate, this multi-level and variegated space is a powerhouse of energy achieved through its thoughtful design.

Playing Green at Arena Pantanal

The eco-efficient Arena Pantanal stadium

There aren’t many global events that capture the world’s imagination quite like the World Cup does. With the 2014 edition well underway, India Art n Design, an Indian art/design website and e-zine, has focused on the design aspects of this mega event. So if you like football and design, you’ll find their articles to be very relevant right now. From the design of the football and the player’s jerseys, to some of Brazil’s FIFA stadiums, the stories delve deep into what went into the creation of these essential aspects of the World Cup.

One of the articles is about the eco-efficient stadium in Brazil called Arena Pantanal. Effectively blending modern design and sustainability solutions, Arena Pantanal is yet another newbie structure on the map of Brazil that will go down in the history of football and other events.

Three games have already taken place at this green stadium. So if you missed any of them, don’t forget that Japan will play against Columbia tomorrow (June 24, 2014). Click here to read this article.
