The Arena das Dunas is scheduled to be completed in December 2013, and four group matches will take place there. It’s one of the more futuristic 2014 World Cup stadiums, with its characteristic petal-shaped upper tier and roof.

 

The unique shape isn’t just for aesthetic purposes, however; it allows breeze to flow into the stadium while keeping sunlight out at the same time. Architecture firm Populous also gave the structure an asymmetrical shape reminiscent of its native city Natal’s sand dunes.
