In the heart of the Middle East, more precisely in Saudi Arabia, where else could such a stadium be but in the futuristic hands of Populous, one of the world’s foremost architecture firms when it comes to stadium designs?
Our journey takes us to the hinterlands of Saudi Arabia, to Qiddiya, situated on the Tuwaiq cliff, soaring 200 meters high. Just 40 minutes from Riyadh, a groundbreaking project that is set to redefine the conventional stadium experience through immersive design and cutting-edge technology. This ambitious endeavor is none other than the Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Stadium.
With a seating capacity of 45,000, this stadium will stand out as the world’s first fully digitally integrated facility. Merging LED roofs, fields, and walls, this architectural innovation enables the venue to swiftly transform and adapt to various configurations. This flexibility opens the doors to hosting a wide array of events, ranging from sports to music.
It’s impossible not to acknowledge that this stadium represents a visionary project, seamlessly blending technology with architecture in a way that not even the Metabolists could have imagined.
