In Doha, not far from the sports complex that will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the Museum of the Olympics and Sports has opened. It is a building in the form of a cylinder enclosed between five intersecting Olympic rings. The new museum was designed by Spanish architect Joan Sibina.
Five Olympic rings surround the glass volume of the building.
The museum adjoins the Khalifa stadium and should immediately attract the attention of visitors to football matches. The façade is covered with rectangular glass panels, and screens are inserted between it and the Olympic rings, reminiscent of traditional Islamic jali screens. src=”/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/d0c063df63da4db90c16a218c9e49b4a.jpg” width=”728″ height=”486″ class=”lazy-image__image _align-center” data-v-64ca9b5a=”1″ alt=” The Museum of the Olympics and Sports has opened in Qatar” />The building of the new museum is attached to one of the stadiums in Doha, which will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
