August 17th, 2012 by Chelsea
The 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar Showcase is already exciting. Arup Associates‘ stadium, one of the stadiums to be used for the big soccer event, has been nominated for World Architecture News’ 2012 Engineering Award.
The zero-carbon stadium, which has a distinct futuristic look, runs on solar power, is capable of storing solar energy in batteries, uses biofuels during times when solar energy needs to be supplemented, has a retractable roof, and has cooling devices under seats to avoid pumping out costly air conditioning.
Sounds like everyone wins in this FIFA tournament.
