Spain’s Fenwick Iribarren Architects has completed a novel design for the 2022 World Cup soccer championship in Qatar. Named the 974 Stadium, it’s designed to be relatively easy to disassemble and rebuild, and was constructed using almost 1,000 shipping containers. The stadium will be used to host the World Cup in Qatar, which will be held in 2022. It was constructed by almost 1.5 million shipping containers and is expected to be used for the tournament in 20 years.
