Sports facilities in the MENA

The harsh desert climate of Qatar is mitigated in the social and recreational areas by fabric canopies, designed to be “visually reminiscent of the desert flowers native to Qatar”, which provide shade and mark key routes to recreation and seating areas. In addition, these seating areas will be nestled into the dunescape to provide cool areas for relaxation.

arch daily published on 24 June 2014 a page of news written by Rory Stott on British architect Nicholas Grimshaw’s work in Qatar :

The Qatar Olympic Committee has selected Grimshaw as the winner of a competition to design a series of recreational sports facilities across Qatar. Grimshaw’s design utilizes a ‘kit-of-parts’ concept to provide adaptable sports centers which suit the different requirements of each site.

The harsh desert climate of Qatar is mitigated in the social and recreational areas by fabric canopies, designed to be “visually reminiscent of the desert flowers native to Qatar”, which provide shade and mark key routes to recreation and seating areas. In addition, these seating areas will be nestled into the dunescape to provide cool areas for relaxation.

In each complex, the canopies and shape of the site will be adjusted to direct cooling winds through the facilities. The design also employs a grey water recycling system to help irrigate the landscape.
