In 2004, architects, engineers, planners, landscape architects and interior designers at global design studio HOK were brought in to devise a 600,000 sq m transport hub to replace the outdated Doha International Airport. The answer is this magnificent and modern airport!
The stadium takes 40.000 people, and has a roof on the western side of the stadium. It will be one of the stadiums where the 2020 FIFA World Cup will take place in Qatar. It was built in 1976 and is a source of pride and symbol for the country’s sporting ambitions. It is being renovated for FIFA World Cup and will use green technologies, such as a metro line line to the stadium, to conform to the commitment to sustainability.
