Qatar will construct a demountable football stadium made of modular building blocks to lessen the carbon footprint from construction and allow the stadium to be used for sporting and non-sporting events when needed

Qatar will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup and they have big plans on how to use the nearby port area to its advantage. The Ras Abu Aboud Stadium will be comprised of modular building blocks, allowing it to be demounted when no longer needed. The project is being spearheaded by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC).

As the World Cup is one of the world's most popular sporting events, Qatar wanted to take advantage of the fact that the spotlight would be on them as they host sports lovers from around the world. To reduce the carbon footprint in constructing the stadium, SC called on Fenwick Iribarren Architects to create a design that can be easily mounted and demounted.

Utilizing Qatar’s water port, the project will implement modular building blocks, such as shipping containers. Every other element will also be removable including the lavatories, concession stands and seats. With this concept, SC expects fewer materials to be used during construction, which equates to less waste overall.

The Ras Abu Aboud Stadium will seat 40,000 football fans. Construction has already begun and it is expected to be completed by 2020.
