One of the flagship projects of MZ ARCHITECTS – the Rock Stadium (Al Ain, UAE) was crowned ‘Best
Future Building’ in the Emirates Glass LEAF Awards.
Marwan Zgheib, founder and principal of MZ ARCHITECTS, received the award on September 21st at a formal Awards Ceremony held at London’s Four Seasons Park Lane Hotel and attended by some of the world’s top architects.
The LEAF Awards, operated by the Leading European Architects Forum, is an annual international architectural prize. It recognizes and honours architects designing buildings that are setting the benchmark for the international architectural community of the next generation.
This breathtaking stadium allows the building to blend in with the surrounding landscape, adding to its allure rather than destroying it. In addition, it consists of a careful balance between man-made and natural elements which makes it even more special. So next time you’re passing by Al-Ain, be sure to plan a special half day visit to one of the most talked about stadiums in the world!
