Description: Education City Stadium

Huge sports and leisure complex is to become the centrepiece of Education City campus district of Doha. Stadium designed for 2022 World Cup will be partly dismantled after the event, losing some 20,000 of its tournament seating.

Along with the vision of Fenwick Irribaren architects (improved several times) its oval outer shell is to resemble a diamond with irregularly curved cladding, reflecting sunshine in daytime and glittering softly with LED lights in the evening.

Façades may be used to react to gameplay emotions with different colours and shapes displayed with thousands of lamps. As the lighting changes will also be visible inside, they may enhance the experience of spectators during events.
