Gustavo Do Amaral
Instructor; Ph.D. Candidate
Stadia as a building typology has been a central object of Amaral's career as an architect at academic and practical levels. Currently, he is focused on the research of design methodologies that can be applied to stadia in order to achieve beneficial legacies. Amaral is a member of the Stadia Lab where scientific design analysis is developed to produce data that can improve the effects of stadia on its built environment. Professionally, Amaral has worked with stadia proposals for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, stadiums and arenas for private and public clients, where he's been able to observe from a privileged point of view the distance of the design process from the advertised legacies as well as the significant impact of large scale stadia to the urban landscape of its host cities.
