NATIONAL STADIUM, BAHRAIN ARCHITECT: Edge (Previously L+B Design Group)
Construction Cost: 8 million USD
The existing Bahrain National Stadium was completed in 1984 and much of the roofing and other components of the building are now in need of renovation and renewal. The Government of Bahrain including the General Organisation for Youth and Sport and the Ministry of Works have reviewed L+B DESIGN GROUP’s proposals for the stadium and have been impressed by the rejuvenation of such an important sport venue. EDGE is taking the design of this stadium into the 21st century and giving a new lease of life to an already completed venue with a long history. The stadium opened on time and hosted the Gulf cup successfully with great reception by the fans.
