Lekhwiya Sports Complex in Doha, Qatar by Perkins Eastman

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Article source: Perkins Eastman 

The Lekhwiya Sports Complex will be the home stadium for the winning team of the Royal Cup, the Lekhwiya Club. The complex will also be used as a training site and home base for a guest team participating in the 2022 World Cup.

Designed in collaboration with ECG, Pieper Sports Facility Consulting, and Site Concepts International, the Lekhwiya Sports Complex will serve as an identifiable icon for the home club, while its mix of uses will provide for a variety of experiences for players, fans, and sponsors alike. Inspiration for the design drew from longstanding aspects of Doha’s and Qatar’s culture and their dominating features. For instance, Doha’s location on the water, its history as a port city, and its boating and sailing culture inspired the design of the stadium’s very form. At the same time, the history of pearl harvesting in the Arabian Gulf is referenced in the smooth white oval and dome shapes.

Article source: AREP

Located to the east of Doha, Qatar, the site of the 2006 Asian Games covers 130 hectares and includes the Khalifa stadium, a sports academy and hall, the women’s sports hall, the women’s club and an aqua centre, a fitness centre, an orthopaedic  hospital, and a mosque. Of all these buildings, the Sports City Tower stands as the emblem of the entire Olympic centre.  Rising to a height of 300 metres, the tower is the highest building in the city and can be seen for many miles around. The design of the tower, with its elegant parabolic lines, looks like a torch. At its summit, visible from all over the city, the Olympic flame will burn throughout the games.
