Football enthusiasts won’t have to go to Brazil to be part of the 2014 World Cup – they can recreate the vibe right here in The Rocks by playing foosball on unique tables housed in six giant timber towers.
The popular tabletop game of soccer will be part of Arena Calcetto, a unique and live installation in The Rocks throughout June, July and August this year. Each timber tower is up to 10 metres high and hides a different foosball table with custom-made players, just waiting for action when the World Cup kicks off on in June!
The result of collaboration between more than 100 international designers from 10 countries, Arena Calcetto creates a public space for people to meet, compete and play in a remarkable location. It is the brainchild of Sydney collective Archrival, a non-profit organisation which facilitates lively independent architectural works made by the Australian design community.
