Tangram unveils ‘wind sculpting’ stadium for Qatar

A proposed design of a sustainable stadium for the Qatar 2022 World Cup was unveiled by Tangram Gulf.

The stadium is oriented to limit solar gain and utilises the movement of air to assist with passive cooling.

The design is said to ‘sculpt the wind’ to provide natural ventilation, while site water is also used for cooling purposes.

Internal circulation routes will contain ceilings that bring in diffused light.

The stadium design was presented by Tangram general manager Nigel Eckersall at the Leaders in Construction conference in Doha, organised by Construction Week Qatar.
