ISO Spaces were delighted to see the finished Stadium 974 at the world cup this week. After having consulted on this project over 6 years ago, it is great to see how modern methods of construction continue to innovate.
The stadium was created from repurposed shipping containers and a modular steel structure and is the first stadium in FIFA World Cup history that can be dismantled and reassembled in a new location, or alternatively repurposed into a series of smaller venues. There are currently plans for the stadium to be transported and rebuilt in Maldonado, Uruguay, to host matches for the 2030 FIFA World Cup if the country’s bid is successful.
The unique design allows the stadium to be naturally ventilated, and fans are already describing it as having the best atmosphere for the tournament.
We are proud to have been involved during the early stages of this project, and we hope that this can serve as an inspiration for more sustainable and innovative designs in the future.
