Floating arena is designed on a floating platform that becomes a temporary extension of the city. The platform can move from one place to another as needed. The project provides a football stadium which is designed according to international standards, as well as rooms for players with facilities, restaurants, media rooms, a sports museum, gym, clinics and health units. There are two types of terraces to the four sides of the stadium. One is an open area with a visual contact why the sea, while the other is a closed area which can turn into a cinema hall.
The project was implemented in several stages, each stage documented in a research that is published in a booklet. The first booklet is related to the Gaza Strip as a first location for the platform. Gaza is a coastal area consisted of five cities, all overlooking the 40-km Mediterranean coast beach. This project is considered a vital need for the city because Gaza is one of the world's most populated areas, living a tense political situation that has made of the sea the only outlet for people, and has made of Football one of the most popular sports in the city. The second research is about football in Gaza and the nature of stadiums and teams that are currently competing. The third research/booklet is about the nature of platform where a football playground will be built. This included a study of existing buildings, ships and oil rigs stands. The fourth booklet contains the initial designs and visions of the project. The fifth booklet is a second draft of the initial designs, which focused on developing the designs and providing a mathematical equations to calculate the slope angle of the terraces. The sixth booklet is a study of the football stadium and its interior facilities according to international standards. The seventh booklet included a design of the playground area and choosing the nature of the grass required.
The final image of the project is a reflection of its title. Floating in this case, represents the uprooting of the political, economic and social circumstances in Gaza. On the other hand, arena represents the violence existing in sports and specially in football. Arena therefore is microcosm of the larger arena, that is Gaza.
