Building The Future

MZ Architects are Lebanon and Abu Dhabi-based architects plus the designer of that impressive proposal of a dessert stadium. The architects were commissioned to think of a sports facility, which should be situated around the city Al Ain in the Unite Arab Emirates. MZ came up with an amazing design merging architecture and landscape into one piece. The 200.000 sqm colosseum is inspired by buildings of our ancestors and refers to the Greek amphitheater. I love the minimalism here, but the concept is unfortunately not fully realizable that way. Due to sandstorms in that area and problems with parking spots, which would destroy the super minimalistic appearance this concept can only stay awesome on paper.
