In the realm of building defining sports infrastructure, we have achieved another milestone with the inauguration of the spectacular Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium (Al Rayyan Stadium) for the 2022 FIFA World Cup at Qatar. The 40,000–seater air-cooled open stadium with a total load of 12,800 TR has a GSAS (Global Sustainability) rating of 4. Its distinctive façade, created using a cutting-edge parametric design, contributes significantly to its cooling. The unique patterns in the façade represent different aspects of Qatari culture known as Naquish patterns that characterise different aspects of the country, the importance of family, the beauty of the desert, the native flora and fauna and local and international trade. The fifth shape, a shield brings together the strength and unity of the city of Al Rayyan.
