Here's Shigeru Ban's Cardboard Pavilion for the World Cup

To celebrate the World Cup, which opened yesterday in Rio de Janeiro, the Brazilian Embassy based in Tokyo tapped cardboard creative and Pritzker Prize winner Shigeru Ban to design and build a temporary structure at its entrance. The 1,300-square-foot pavilion is made of weather-resistant cardboard—it is the Tokyo-based architect's specialty, after all—and serves as a meeting space for post-game discussion (the time difference makes broadcasting the games difficult) as well as a place to eat Brazilian foods and watch Brazilian movies.
