Zaha Hadid Unveils Design for Qatar 2022 World Cup Stadium

Legendary architect Zaha Hadid continues to roll out designs during an already prolific year, with the designer now unveiling her work for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Just one of a potential nine stadiums to be constructed in the country, this particular stadium is set for construction in Al Wakrah – the southernmost city hosting the soccer tournament. The facade of the stadium take cues from a dhow, a type of fishing boat frequently found in Al Wakrah’s harbors. The shape also takes Qatar’s blazing, arid climate into consideration, incorporating a curved roof with a mechanical air conditioning system to keep spectators and players cool. Construction for the stadiums is expected to begin as early as next year.
