Soccer stadiums are highly complicated architectural endeavors, but they become even more difficult to plan when they are being constructed in countries with extreme weather conditions that can pose danger to the health of both players and spectators. Accordingly, the new Mohammed bin Rashid Stadium, set to be constructed in the famously hot city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, features a porous external skin and translucent rooftop that work to allow in breeze and minimize heat gain.

Additionally, this soccer stadium site will be filled with trees that will help to help warm winds out, a seemingly minor measure that can actually make a huge difference in a country where summer temperatures can approach 50 degrees Centigrade.

This stadium is a great example of innovative engineering being used to combat the weather elements.
