An olympic stadium in the middle of the desert

Located on the exit to Nasiriyah to the south of Iraq, on the road to Baghdad, the project includes a stadium seating
30,000, two training stadiums seating 2,500 and 500 people respectively, and a 4* hotel with 80 rooms. Designed to meet
safety regulations and FIFA standards, the stadium is sheltered by an embossed aluminium shell which seems to float above
the ground and whose patterns evoke the vegetal ornamentation of traditional Iraqi monuments. Its strong identity brings together tradition and modernity within a
contemporary movement.
