Qatar’s 2022 World Cup Stadiums

Now that Qatar’s won the right to host the 2022 World Cup finals, we can look forward to seeing these futuristic-bling-happy stadium designs brought to life. The other-worldly, curvaceous structures have the “grounded mothership” aesthetic down pat.

The stadiums were designed by Albert Speer & Partner, GmbH, and they represent a huge leap forward in energy-efficiency as well as looking like an alien invasion in progress. The five stadiums will use solar energy to power air-conditioning systems that will keep fans and players cool during the games, in the midst of the Middle Eastern summer.
