BUILDING THE WORLD CUP
Go 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.
We take a comprehensive look at:
- A complex refurbishment of Rio de Janeiro's iconic Maracanã Stadium.
- The high-tech Corinthians Arena in São Paulo.
- The vastly expensive vanity project that is the Amazônia Arena in the heart of the Brazilian rainforest.
All three stadiums are different - architecturally and engineering-wise. But all three share the same problems: Tight schedules, sky-rocketing budgets, unpredictable weather conditions and mass, country-wide protests.
