Entry DescriptionThe lighting of Al Janoub stadium in Qatar, which will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, was a complicated technological task, and the lighting solution had to fit the geometry of the elegant and futuristic design by the development and execution of the exterior lighting, for both stadium and its surroundings, from bicycle paths, horse-riding and running tracks to restaurants, gyms and parkland.
It is a stadium that from its more futuristic version, recalls the past sailor of Al Wakrah, the interior structure itself and the luminous reflection make it possible to remember the hull of a ship.
To illuminate the entire project, 313 columns and 1090 luminaires were used, a model that also appeals to energy efficiency with independent high transparency lenses. And for the columns, to provide the intended luminous feeling, different heights ranging from 5 m to 16.2 m were installed. Basic principles of lighting the outdoor area were closely examined, and the appropriate lux level was provided to the practice courts to ensure that they did not interfere with the light level in the relaxed pedestrian areas around the stadium.
Lighting, architecture, and football have all triumphed therefore.
