Inaugurated in June 1999, the Atlético-PR stadium was already considered the most modern stadium in Brazil. With a capacity of 25,000 people, the Arena da Baixada required some remodelling in preparation for the 2014 World Cup.
Architects settled on the creation of a new image that would serve as an icon for the city: an “illuminated box”. The requirements were that the materials be standard and preferably produced in the country. In terms of materials used, the designers sought a sense of permeability between the interior and the exterior that would establish real interaction with citizens through lightness, translucency, lighting, and image.
The stadium’s glass elements such as the balustrade, façade and VIP room elements were laminated using Evalam, which was chosen because it provided a high degree of reliability in terms of thermal-acoustic comfort and light stability against humidity and open edge structures.
