Today I visited #Lusail 🏟 in 🇶🇦 to view the progress of construction. It’s design plays with the light & shadows of the traditional fanar 🏮. Located 15km from Doha & connected to the capital by #DohaMetro, it will seat 80,000 ⚽️fans during @FIFAWorldCup. pic.twitter.com/tyR7zvAanI— Fatma Samoura (@fatma_samoura) February 14, 2021
