An alternative take on Camp Nou

To this day the Camp Nou stadium (L’Estadi) is considered one of the most famous, most important, and most visited sports stadia in the world. However, away from its famous ring-like stands which are viewed by millions every week, hide corners, hallways, and stairs that seem to belie their colourful insides wrapped in fresh paint, adorned by renowned sponsors.

This is an attempt to take a famous structure removed from its usual function, and focus on its naked architectural undercurrent. As we pay closer attention to its less highlighted, less viewed, and less photographed corners, we find the seams which allow us a peek into the brutalist skeleton Josep Soteras Mauri and Francesc Mitjans Miró set out to build a stadium around in 1957.
