The Grand Stade de Casablanca will be built in an old quarry and will feature passive solar design with concrete fin-like blades that promote natural ventilation.
In between the envelope of the blades and the interior stadium is a garden that serves as a thermal buffer and oasis for the spectators to enjoy.
Construction on the 80,000 seat soccer stadium is expected to begin shortly and then be completed some time in 2013.
