Next to the Al Rayyan Sports Club hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the Mall of Qatar has been designed by the internationally-known studio of architects Chapman Taylor and has a total surface of 500.000 square meters integrating a shopping, dining and entertainment experience.
The Mall of Qatar, inaugurated in April 2017, is currently the biggest mall of the country, hosting more than twenty million visitors every year. The design won the International Retail and Leisure Destination 2017 and the Retail Leadership Award 2016 also for the characteristic central hall called “the Oasis”: a 30 meters high green area offering entertainment and educational areas for families.
Within the Mall of Qatar there is the largest IMAX Laser 3D projection system in the world, with a 3.000 seats capacity. The supporting structure is made of steel, reaching a weight of 1.600 tons.
