Zaha Hadid Architects just unveiled plans for the first of up to nine stadiums that will be constructed for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup. Located in Al Wakrah, a fishing port 15km south of Doha, the 40,000-seat venue will make use of passive design features to keep the venue cool during the scorching summer months. The stadium’s overall design was influenced by the shape of a traditional Arab dhow, a local fishing boat that can be found in the nearby port.
