Al Thumama Stadium in Doha

Fenwick Iribarren Architects 

With its facade showing Islamic patterns and a form that makes one think of a garment commonly worn by young Qataris, the new sport arena oozes with vernacular culture.

The rhombic pieces of fiberglass that form the facade and roof create translucent and opaque surfaces, alternatingly, to regulate incoming light during the day and achieve a dramatic effect at night.
