In Berlin, people do things differently, if you want to watch the World Cup with your friends but are too lazy to get up from your sofa, you just combine both.
The Stadion An der Alten Försterei (eng: Stadium near the old Forester’s house) has been transformed into the World’s largest living room (about 3500m²) for the duration of the World Cup.
The Stadium, which is home to the football club 1. FC Union Berlin, holds over 750 sofas and up to 12,000 people can watch the World Cup together, whether its from your own sofa or from one of three open stands.
Here is another street art from the WC06 promotion project Joga Bonita (I wrote about it earlier this year), it’s located near the main entrance of Berlin’s Mauerpark (Prenzlauer Berg district).
Because Berlin is a World City, nothing is odd, not even a huge Brazilian World-Cup-Victory-Celebrating Street Art.
The painting, located in the Schöneberg district, was part of an art project named Joga Bonita (play beautiful) a unique promotion for the World Cup 2006 in Berlin/Germany.
And who knows, maybe they have to add another star after this years event.
