With the draw for the 2018 FIFA World Cup out of the way, we’re looking ahead to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and at one innovative stadium in particular. Plans for a 40,000-seat modular stadium built wholly from shipping containers have been revealed by Fenwick Iribarren Architects.

The eco-friendly circular structure will be built on site at the Doha waterfront over the next three years but thanks to the modular nature of the design it can be disassembled and reassembled at will depending on the event. The fact that it can be reconfigured at will has led H.E. Hassan Al Thawadi, Secretary General of the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy for the World Cup, to state that “This venue offers the perfect legacy, capable of being reassembled in a new location in its entirety or built into numerous small sports and cultural venues.” The stadium requires few other materials to complete construction and will produce very little waste in comparison to other major sporting arenas. “All of this in a stadium that delivers the atmosphere fans expect at a World Cup,” Hassan Al Thawadi concludes. You can check out some concept images in the gallery above and watch a video about the stadium below.
