Since 2008 several stadia are newly planned and under construction, others will be expanded and modernized for the FIFA 2014 World Cup in Brazil. In this paper four projects are presented. Three of them are under construction now, the fourth project was stopped after completion of the structural planning and an alternative design was selected to be built.
To develop designs for four different stadia at the same time and to represent the designs locally, requires appropriately staffed and experienced teams, but also a clear definition of the design parameters. These parameters differ in each project and so are the resulting designs. New and refreshing variations of the familiar theme.
