Renderings of Al Bayt Stadium, a modular 60,000-seat Qatar 2022 World Cup stadium, have been released.
The design, highlighted by the country’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), is based on tents used by nomadic tribes in the region. Al Bayt Stadium is envisioned for use in the World Cup semifinals and will be built in a modular fashion, with the upper deck slated to be dismantled after the World Cup (downsizing the facility to 32,000 seats), with the seats given away for use in other stadium.
According to the Qatar ministry, the stadium will be built according to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) standards. It’s one of 10 stadiums envisioned by Qatar for use in the 2022 World Cup: more than the eight stadiums required by FIFA.
