They only revised the outside, yer the inside still looks the same. I should have had the lower tier have the same curvature as the upper tier. Are there any other stadiums in which the curvatures of the tiers aren't the same?

They play futsal and, mainly, volleyball. But only for major games.
That's how the indoor hall should have looked.


This project will certanly change, due to the redevelopment of the project.

BTW It's the largest indoor arena in Brazil.

Yes. The exterior was revised. Aa lot of stuff you can see in those first pictures, are not present in those last. Like the lakes or some "holes" in the floor. The redevelopment intention was not to change anything in the the stadium project itself.

I can't remember by heart any stadium with different curvatures now. Maybe Sercan cans.

All I know about the project, is that the upper tier will not be demolished. That's the reason for the oval shape in the top.
IN constrast, the lower tier will be completely reconstructed. So, it's curvature is rectangular.

But the construction crews will probably just mess up and make the new lower tier have oval shape instead of rectangular.

Surely the best thing to do is to sink the playing field into the ground and extend the lower tier so that it meets the pitch as a rectangle. No other adjustments are needed. No-one in the upper tier gets any further away from the action. Capacity would increase as well.

I forgot to add this to my last comment:

"Even if they lowered the pitch, they'd still mess up on that new rectangular tier".

Come on, if the project predicts a rectangular tier, that's what is going to be built.

OK, some people are not understanding clearly the renders.

Facade's architecture: Can not be changed by law. It's a Brazilian football historical site.
Lower tier: It will not be rectangular wich is bad. There won't be any race track or standings between that and the pitch. There will have a ditch to avoid crazy people invading the pitch tough.
Pitch: It will be sinked to allow perfect view from lower tier.

Any more doubts?

I find this renovation excellent and far much better as for the Morumbi stadium. I like the oval shape, it's a part of traditional Brazilian style stadiums. The most important thing is, they will lower the pitch, so that all spectators (especially those in 1st tier) can have a good view.

Well, for me the shape of lower tier is rectangular. The upper tier will continue oval shaped.

Take a look at this pic:



Upper tier (yellow) 38.100 - is oval shaped
Lower tier (grey) 17.950 - is rectangular.

However, if you consider rectangular only an "Old Trafford like" tier, I may agree with you.

It's semi rectangular. Rectangular it's like in Arena da Baixada.

Arena da baixada is an "Old Trafford like" stadium.
Which has the problem of the view in the corners. That's why some new stadiums like City of Manchester are built rectangular but with a slightly curvature in the tiers

I'm being rather pedantic, but I think the curvature could be slightly less exaggerated, though I understand why it is curved a bit.

The Mineirao Stadium's concrete exterior is concrete. Hope that will be cleaned up during the renovation.

Also, it would be nice if there were an oval lower tier would just be closer to the football field with NO track.

I'm afraid it will not look nice when it's finished and after sometime maybe will be looking dirty.

It would be better if they use granite on facade, no pedras portuguesas for the pavement and cover the entire parking lot as it was in the previous project.

At least there are good news, works are being made on right time and the plans of local state government has been approved by FIFA yesterday.
