Qatar Foundation Stadium
This stadium is part of the Health and Wellness Precinct, within Qatar Foundation Education City and is proposed as a 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 center 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 can be later reduced to 25,000. This is thanks to the design that facilitates dismantling of the upper seating tier.
The designers also carried a pioneering R&D program for the stadium cooling system design, which aims to ensure the safety of players and spectator comfort.

The design made computational fluid dynamics analysis 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 minimize energy use.
The project is targeting a LEED Gold certification rating and incorporates a variety of additional sustainable design aspects such as green roofs, photovoltaic and solar thermal panels, energy use reduction initiatives and water recycling.
