Qatar Foundation Stadium

Client: Qatar Foundation
Location: Doha, Qatar
Size: 140.000 m2
Spectators: 40.000

QF stadium is one on of the Qatar 2022 World cup stadium. The stadium is integrated on the Qatar Foundation university complex. As well as fulfilling the Clients Brief as the principle Sports Complex for the Education City in Doha, Fenwick Iribarren wanted to exploit it as a major Social focal point within the Campus as a green area with sun shading elements for public comfort. The Stadium will be one of the venues which will host matches in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The Stadium is currently envisioned for group, knockout and quarter-final matches during the Tournament with a capacity for 40.000 spectators. The Stadium´s capacity will be reduced to 25.000 following the World Cup by dismantling the upper tier.

 

 

The other principle installations, indoor swimming, tennis and multipurpose sports pavilions, are entrenched below a faceted landscape roof that acts as a green forecourt to the iconic diamond shaped stadium, itself the focal point at the end of a principle east-west axis of the university complex.   This axis is enhanced by the sunken curved street and plaza that provides access to the various sports facilities.  This sunken oasis thus becomes the social hub of activity within the complex and EC, including a wide range of public amenities and facilities.
