The Proposed Ras Abu Aboud Stadium in Qatar by Fenwick Iribarren Architects will be based on Shipping Containers

Fenwick Iribarren Architects together Schlaich Bergermann Partner and Hilson Moran were commissioned by the Supreme Committee to design Ras Abu Aboud Stadium.

It will be the first ever demountable, transportable and reusable stadium in the World & the third stadium the architects have developed for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The stadium has a capacity of 40 000 and its structure is based on shipping containers which can be easily assembled or disassembled as required.

Following the World cup, the stadium can be dismantled by section or in parts and be transported to other host cities for the next World Cup, helping make it more sustainable and financially viable for other countries.
