The World Cup Soccer Championships draws amazing numbers of soccer fans and Qatar is quickly working on ideas to house over 25,000 fans during the 2022 World Cup event. One of the most exciting concepts under consideration and preliminary design are a series of floating hotels that would form their own island just off the shore of Qatar. The man made island would have its own sewage, power, and water purification systems, reducing the demand on Qatar’s existing systems.
One of the most significant benefits of the design happens after the 2022 World Cup. The hotels can be separated into smaller clusters and moved to new locations for new events, or to busy business or tourist areas. The design plans for the immediate needs and for the continued growth of Qatar.
