The Source Sports Club Complex

This unique sports centred mixed use precinct will distinguish “The Source” at Al Ain as a sporting destination that will be talked about throughout the world.

Deriving it’s inspiration from local symbolism and the geology that characterizes this Garden City, our competition winning design for
this unique sports centred mixed use precinct will distinguish “The Source” at Al Ain as a sporting destination that will be talked about throughout the world. The design’s main feature is a powerful cluster of four primary, world-class stadia organized under one main, mirage-like structure. The sheer size and design of the roof structure will create a distinct icon on the skyline and will also be capable of being clearly viewed from above the Earth as well. From the center or “Eye” of the roof, structure visitors will be astounded by the experience of viewing over all of the venues, creating a panoptic view that has never been achieved in sport spectator history. Its translucent and shimmering materials will hover above the stadia, providing shade and shelter to the streets below, energized by the sporting activities within the stadia.
