The Qatar Foundation Stadium is the fourth stadium revealed in preparation for the 2022 FIFA World Cup released by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy taking inspiration from the traditional Islamic architecture.
The stadium has a capacity of 40000 seats and it was planned for the Education City of Qatar as the home of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development. The interior and the façade are clad in triangular panels with translucent surfaces to change color according to the time of day and also to reflect the artificial light from inside.
The stadium will be available to students, faculty and employees as well as to the local community with its gymnasium, clinics, an aquatic center and facilities for racquet sports, cycling, surfing and rock climbing so that after the World Cup the project will become a landmark for sports in the region. The modular upper level can be removed and it will reduce the capacity to 25000 seats, making it more efficient.
