Currently in the planning and design phase, the Mohammed bin Rashid Stadium is part of a mixed-use development that will include a 60,000-seat stadium, training facilities, practice pitch and warm up areas, a 5,000-space car park, museum, multi-purpose sports hall, shops, restaurants, and plaza areas for the public to enjoy. The inspiration for the design stems from the desire to create a stadium like no other that draws from regional precedents while providing a sustainable and visionary destination for Dubai.

Perkins+Will’s design for the stadium is an open-tensile roof, elevated structure encased in a diagrid bowl with the playing field elevated 60 feet above a shaded entry plaza below. Design considerations are being implemented to make the complex available for use year-round. Features include an architectural skin that allows for airflow while blocking out unwanted sand and sun, courtyard water elements beneath the stadium that create a natural thermal sink that cools the air, and a landscape design that uses trees and vegetation to block hot wind while shading the surrounding public areas.
