Innovative Qatar Foundation Stadium

The stadium is part of the Health and Wellness Precinct, within Qatar Foundation Education City and is conceived as a proposed host venue for the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ and one of the principal sports complexes in Qatar. Additionally the Health & Wellness Precinct includes an indoor aquatic centre with two Olympic size pools and a diving pool, a multipurpose sports pavilion housing an indoor athletics track and tennis academy, plus external training fields.

The stadium will have a tournament capacity of 40,000 spectators, which is later reduced in legacy mode to 25,000 thanks to a modular design that facilitates dismantling of the upper seating tier.

Arup is providing a complete service including structural design, building services, façade engineering, civil engineering and infrastructure, together with consulting services for stadium cooling design, sustainability, fire safety, security and ICT as well as audio visual services.

In order to meet the challenges of this project, the team carried out a pioneering R&D program for the stadium cooling system design, which aims to ensure the safety of players and spectator comfort.

“Using an innovative computational fluid dynamics analysis, we were able to design an intelligent stadium cooling system which uses a series of passive measures, including bespoke stadium roof geometry, to protect the stadium bowl from the harsh external conditions and minimise energy use.” – David Castro, Associate Director and Project Manager, Arup

UFO in the forest: Football stadium by OFIS

Football stadium by OFIS

Nowadays, a football stadium is an absolute statement structure. This one has just been completed in the city of Barysaw, Belarus.

The stadium, which looks like a UFO, was created by OFIS. For this design, special attention was paid to preserving as much of the natural landscape as possible, meaning that both the approach to the building and the parking lot are surrounded by forest.

Along with 13,000 seats, the stadium offers an additional 3,000 m² of space for shops, offices, bars and toilets. In terms of its UEFA ranking, it stands among other 4-star facilities.

The stadium’s frame features a textile exterior cover which is characterized by asymmetrical openings providing views to both the inside and outside. In the forest location, these “splotches” call to mind the colouring of a fire salamander.
