Al Rayyan Stadium is one of the venues for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The project is a gorgeous architecture that was designed by Pattern Architects
From the architects: Pattern are Lead Designer and architect for the 40,000 stadium, indoor training pitches and master planner for the precinct. The client theme for the site is Desert. This translates into a master plan concept of a caravan or journey in the desert landscape configured using a circle packing geometry.
Evoking the idea of a gathering, the stadium is a contemporary tent set in a metaphoric dune landscape. A key feature of the stadium is its elegant, ornate façade: a contemporary interpretation of traditional Naquish patterns specific to Qatari culture. This builds on our interest in how patterns are culturally rich symbols with a universal appeal. The stadium’s distinctive façade was created using cutting-edge parametric design so that the facade also plays an important role in cooling the building. The result is a landmark for Qatar that works effectively both as a world-stage for sport and, we hope, something that is genuinely meaningful and welcoming locally.
