Host cities for major sporting events such as the Olympics are often required to construct vast new stadiums and facilities. But these facilities can then struggle to find new uses after the players and fans have gone home. Qatar, hosts of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, hopes to avoid this with a stadium that can be disassembled and rebuilt elsewhere in a new configuration. The Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, designed by Spain’s Fenwick Ibarren Architects, will be built from modular containers which can be slotted together to form the shell of the stadium, then dismantled and reused in another location.
