A tree-like stadium!

A tree-like stadium!

New York-based RAW-NYC Architects have revealed their design for a high-tech soccer stadium that mimics the branches and roots of a tree. Planned for Qatar – the little emirate lying halfway along the coast of the Gulf – the new indoor stadium will house two soccer fields, reception areas, administration offices, a café, viewing gallery, sports store and locker rooms for players.

Each area is connected to a different part of a tree, with the main structure supported by a wide ‘trunk’ and the roof, facades and interior enclosed within entwined ‘branches’. Light is able to filter through the branch-covered roof, filling the stadium with abundant natural light and creating an experience similar to that of being under the shady canopy of a tree. The exterior branches also act as a solar skin, referred to as ‘Solar Ivy’. Combined with passive cooling technologies, the ‘skin’ will help the stadium move towards a LEED (Leadership in
Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
