Sports & Stadiums Winner: Doha City Tennis Stadium by Arup Associates, Qatar
Project: Doha City Tennis Stadium
Architect: Arup Associates
Client: Qatar Olympic Committee
Characterised by the pure form of a conical bowl surrounded by a swooping ribbon of concourses, this is a self-shading 15,000 seat zero-carbon stadium which is naturally ventilated during cool periods. Cutting-edge concentrated solar-collector arrays generate high-temperature hot water to drive steam chillers to produce zero-carbon chilled water for spectator cooling. [???] VIP lounges around the arena are a first for a tennis venue.The judges said: ‘A beautiful piece of architecture combining exemplary environmental strategies with rigorous structural engineering.’
