Foster + Partners 


The firm of Norman Foster has designed Lusail Stadium, the main venue – for the opening and final match – of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. It will take in 80,000 spectators and will be the centerpiece of Lusail, a new city currently going up 15 kilometers north of Doha. Drawing inspirpation from vernacular architecture and craft traditions, the golden building will later be turned into a community space including schools, stores, cafés, sport facilities, and clinics. Construction has already begun and completion is programmed for 2020.
