We strived for a project that unifies with the existing structure that respected it and its conditions as a cultural heritage of the state of Oaxaca. With this premise, we began the challenge of renewing the Oaxaca Warriors Stadium, current home of the Oaxaca Warriors. We designed a white, lightweight structure that would protect the fans, supported only in the exterior curb, imitating the rhythm of preexistence.

An undulated membrane modeled by a single structural frame that heightens the character of the building, turning it into an icon for the city. Red marquee and booths as a present signal of the warrior blood of Oaxaca.
