ZHA one of a number of UK architects working on 2022 World Cup venues
A stadium designed by Zaha Hadid Architects that will be used in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar has held its first match.
The 40,000-seat Al Janoub Stadium at the coastal city of Al Wakrah, south of the capital Doha, was the first to be commissioned for the event. The first game was played on its turf last week.
Capacity will drop to 20,000 once the World Cup has finished. It has an operable roof designed by German Schlaich Bergermann Partner, which worked on the new Spurs stadium, and a seating bowl cooling system.
