Zaha Hadid Architects has completed the Al Wakrah Stadium, a venue for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, and it hosts its inaugural match today.
Located in the city of Al Wakrah, around 10 miles south of Doha, the 40,000-seat stadium opens with the Amir Cup final between Al Sadd and Al Duhail tonight
Zaha Hadid建築事務所已經完成了Al Wakrah體育場，這是2022年卡塔爾國際足聯世界杯的舉辦地，今天舉辦了首場比賽。
位於多哈以南約10英里的Al Wakrah市，擁有40,000個座位的體育場將於今晚在Al Sadd和Al Duhail之間舉行Amir Cup決賽。
Zaha Hadid Architects’ stadium is one of several new venues being built for the football tournament in 2022, and is first to complete.
In total, eight venues will be used during the World Cup, including the Khalifa International Stadium that was redeveloped in 2017 and the 80,000-seater Lusail Stadium designed by Foster + Partners.
Another of the venues, the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, will be built using shipping containers.
Zaha Hadid Architects的體育場是2022年為足球錦標賽建造的幾個新場館之一，也是第一個完成的場館。
總共將在世界杯期間使用8個場館，包括2017年重建的哈利法國際體育場和由Foster + Partners設計的8萬個座位的Lusail體育場。
另一個場地Ras Abu Aboud體育場將使用集裝箱建造。
The distinctive form of Zaha Hadid Architects’ Al Wakrah Stadium was taken from the shape of the typical fishing boats – called dhows – that can be seen in the city’s harbour.
However, when visualisations of the stadium were first revealed many people compared its shape to female genitalia.
The stadium has a fully retractable roof so that the players and spectators can be cooled, allowing for the building to be used all-year round.

“I am certain that in 2022 Al Wakrah Stadium will be one of the most iconic venues at the World Cup, and it gives us all a sense of great pride to be opening the second Qatar 2022 stadium with three and a half years to go,” said Jassim Al Jassim, head of venues operations at the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy.
“I look forward to working together with all our stakeholders, friends and colleagues over the coming years to enjoy many more momentous occasions.”
“我確信在2022年，Al Wakrah體育場將成為世界杯最具代表性的場館之一，它讓我們感到非常自豪，能夠在三年半的時間裡開設第二個卡塔爾2022體育場， “交付和遺產最高委員會的場地運營負責人Jassim Al Jassim說。
Following the World Cup, the capacity of the stadium will be reduced to 20,000 in a similar manner to the studio’s London Aquatic Centre, which had its capacity reduced form 17,500 to 2,800 following the 2012 Olympic Games.
The stadium will also become the permanent home of football team Al Wakrah Sports Club.
Zaha Hadid Architects was founded by Pritzker-winning architect Zaha Hadid in 1980. The studio has been led by Patrik Schumacher since Hadid passed away in 2016.
The studio is currently designing a concert hall for Ural Philharmonic Orchestra in Russia, a pair of skyscrapers in London, and an office on world’s most expensive site in Hong Kong.
