Project information

Al Janoub is the first stadium to be built from scratch for the 2022 World Cup. It seats 40,000 spectators in tournament mode and will be used up the quarter finals of the FIFA World Cup, after which it will be converted to 20,000 seats to be used by the Al Wakrah Sports Club. The design is inspired by the rich heritage of Qatar and the Al Wakrah region.

Creating a landmark stadium that offers a world class experience was the challenge and rapid prototyping using parametric design with SCIA Engineer and interoperability with Virtual Reality environments allowed us to test different solutions and evaluate options to produce a stadium befitting the Architect’s vision.
