Organic Invented Fields

Arguably one of the reasons soccer has become the world's game, is it's accessibility. All you need is some space and something roundish, and the game's fluid nature can adapt to your local geography and architecture. We found a beautiful set of photos that.

O Campo is a photography series by Joachim Schmid, concerning irregular Brazilian football fields. These organic invented fields are resulting products of vacant/waste lands together with a rising demand for playgrounds. A pure example of contextual urbanism, where the built existing context is the one who fixes the rules.

As the photographer states: the desire for playing the game has clearly surpassed and ignored the limitations of natural topography and FIFA’s laws.
