Sambódromo


The Sambodromo is the “stadium” of samba. It consists of the Parading Avenue (the samba run-way) and several independent concrete structures for the spectators (the so called sectors) along both sides of the Parading Avenue. The Sambodromo was designed by Brazil’s world-famous architect, the modernist Oscar Niemeyer. It had been purposely built for the Samba Parade and was inaugurated in 1984. Being made of concrete, it seems a bit dated for the post-modern eyes of today. It feels derelict if not ugly, surrounded only by favelas, while serving smaller cultural events, during the year.
