Khalifa Sports Center Tower - Roger Taillibert

The Khalifa Sports Center Tower, designed for the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, Quatar, by French architect Roger Taillibert, the designer of stadia for the Montreal Olympics and of Paris's Parc de Prince stadium.

Taillibert talks of his sports stadia as "Game Space" ...
a place where man can unleash, either in shelter or in the open, his definitive physical performances.
As definitive performances go, Taillibert's own are right up there.
