Arena Dragão Caixa : Porto Football Club

Pavilion Building in Portugal – design by Risco, architects

19 Apr 2010

Arena Dragão Caixa Porto

Porto Football Club Pavilion, Porto, Portugal

Architects: Risco

The site, which is irregular in shape, is actually the left-over of a network of road infrastructures. The construction of the pavilion is particularly important in urban terms, because it closes the eastern edge of the Antas Detailed Development Plan.

Its location next to the Dragon Stadium, the Metro Station, and the superb views from the square around the stadium are all essential elements of the design.With seating for 2,000 people, the pavilion is intended to house the rest of the Club’s sports.
