King Abdullah Sports City National Stadium, Jeddah

Stadium of Year 2014 winner, Public Vote #13, Jury Vote #7 Location: Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Design: Arup Associates

King Abdullah Sports City National Stadium was generated in Grasshopper and Rhino.

A ribbon of bracing and tie-down v-frames encircle the stadium. These express the structure, while echoing the mashrabiya screens of traditional Arabic and Islamic architecture and design.
