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.
