About the Book
This book features a comprehensive photography essay of Arena do Morro. The project, a gymnasium designed by swiss practice Herzog & de Meuron, is located in Natal RN, Brazil.
A slotted roof, supported by an existing structure, covers the sports hall. A perforated curve wall delimites the space, and the same element generates different cylinders that house the service spaces. Poured concrete is used for both the flooring and the seatings. The result shows two different geometries and materials perfectly combined in an original space. The simplicity of the solution is crucial when it comes to judging the relationship between the new building and the local environment.
Leonardo Finotti is today one of the leading architectural photographers worldwide. Finotti´s images bring us an extremely depurated vision which takes us close to the essence of each project.
