World Cup 2022: Populous reveals Sports City Stadium, Qatar

  • 1 Comment

Populous has unveiled these images of its air-conditioned stadium project in Qatar which is being built for the 2022 World Cup

The 47,000-seat stadium features a retractable roof and a retractable pitch allowing the arena to be reconfigured for non-sport uses.

Powered by solar energy, the venue’s playing surface and seating stands will be climate controlled with cool air blown onto spectators at neck and ankle levels. During the summer months temperatures in the Arabian Peninsula can reach as high as 40° Celsius.

The project aims to be ‘zero-carbon’, contributing some of the energy its solar panels produce to Qatar’s national electricity grid.

Sports City Stadium is one of the 12 ‘conceptual stadia’ designed for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Populous principal Dan Meis designed the stadium while working at Aedas. Following Meis’ move to join the company in September last year, the intention is for the project to continue as a collaboration between Aedas and Populous.
