The world of design and the soccer world seem to rarely intersect beyond the realm of stadium design. But Japanese firm Daisuke Motogi Architecture have taken the simple notion of soccer goals and re-appropriated them into something a little more universal. Shaded canopies, created by flipping goals over and combining them, result in a place for shelter as well as for play.
In the wrong hands, this is just another way for soccer fields to be appropriated for purposes other than soccer. Not that a little shade on a hot day ever hurt anyone.
