UAE-based MZ Architects is shortlisted for its Rock Stadium project under the Future Projects category at this year’s World Architecture Festival.
Rock Stadium has been designed for the city of Al Ain, Abu Dhabi Emirate, and is carved into the site’s volcanic rock with the pitch sunken into the sand for cooler conditions.
The project fits the “rethink + renew” theme for the World Architecture Festival which looks at innovative and creative approaches to existing buildings and areas.
The future projects category is part of the three main sections of the competition including completed buildings and landscape architecture.
World Architecture Festival runs from 3-5 October in Singapore.
