Building The World Cup went behind the scenes of one of Brazil’s biggest engineering projects: the creation of three state-of-the-art football stadiums capable of hosting international soccer at the highest level. A complex refurbishment of Rio de Janeiro’s iconic Maracanã Stadium – the site of the country’s last World Cup defeat on home turf – the high-tech Corinthians Arena in São-Paulo: a project so cutting edge much of its advanced technology hadn’t even been tested at international level, and the vastly expensive vanity project that was the Amazônia Arena in the heart of the Brazilian rainforest. All three stadiums were different – architecturally and engineering-wise. But all three shared the same problems – tight schedules, sky-rocketing budgets, unpredictable weather conditions and mass, country-wide protests. The 2014 World Cup loomed and the eyes of the world were on Brazil, could they deliver on time and on budget?
