Arena Calcetto Sydney - launching September 20 for Art & About 2013
Arena Calcetto is a site specific and interactive installation that was showcased at the Australian Pavilion for the 13th Venice International Architecture Biennale. It will make its Australian debut in the Paddington Reservoir Gardens for Art & About 2013 from September 20 - October 31. Made with 6 prefabricated timber towers, 6 custom perforated fussball tables and over 250 unique fussball players, Arena Calcetto was created by a diverse national and international project team of over 100 collaborators.

design + make your own fussball team
Archrival invites architects, designers, artists and other creative ‘makers’ to design and fabricate their own fussball team to be part of this indoor + outdoor site specific work. Archrival is looking for experimental objects with diverse materiality and a high level of craftsmanship or design. By participating in this collaborative studio you join Archrival's project team and become one of the important co-authors of Arena Calcetto.
You can participate in two ways:
1. If you're in Sydney, join our weekly workshops in Darlinghurst from August-September 2013
2. For all interstate and international competitors, please register for a design brief & delivery details
For Sydney based participants is it essential that you attend all workshops listed below. Archrival’s method of designing and making involves project teams working and evolving together, so bring an open mind.
