This time next year, Qatar is due to host the FIFA World Cup.
In preparation, the Gulf nation is testing its infrastructure with the FIFA Arab Cup, being held right now.
The World Cup stadiums are part of Qatar’s most ambitious project yet, with almost all of them built a year ahead of schedule.
Their designs represent the past and present and are tailored to unique needs of a country with fewer than three million people hosting FIFA’s biggest tournament.
Al Jazeera’s Sara Khairat reports from Doha, where she looks at the inspiration behind the designs.
