Qatar 2022


The World Cup technical committee for Qatar 2022 invited C+A Design to put forward a proposal to provide temporary accommodation that would be utilised during the World Cup period. A cradle to grave solution was presented that used recycled shipping containers as rooms which could be used during the tournament, and then packed up to be transported to another location. Integrating public spaces to the scheme was key to its success; utilising the voids amongst the units and additional canopies to form shaded areas. The cooling and ventilation scheme was inspired by traditional Middle Eastern wind catcher towers, reducing the energy requirements of the project.
