Cringe-inducing it may be, but the design of Qatar’s recently unveiled World Cup 2022 stadium has proven to be worth talking about. The rendering of the al-Wakrah stadium was meant to look like a boat, but instead it’s been dubbed the ‘accidental vagina.’

al-Arabiya (h/t MZ)   “The Qatari stadium’s resemblance to a woman’s private parts may be unintentional, but I for one applaud it,” wrote Holly Baxter in the GuardianThe feminist website Jezebel commented: “Any discerning human will be quick to recognize that the building looks exactly like an enormous vagina.”

This is not what the architects intended. The design is supposed to resemble the sails of a dhow boat which was traditionally used for pearl fishing by Qataris. Buzzfeed’s Matt Kiebus noted that the $120 billion project bears little resemblance to an ancient dhow boat “that Qataris traditionally used for pearl diving.”

In remarks to Al Arabiya News, Guardian columnist Baxter said “I do like to think that this is Zaha Hadid having a laugh with the incredibly conservative Qatari authorities, whether consciously or unconsciously. But I do think that the publicity the stadium has now had will probably prevent it being built, which is a tragedy for all of us with female genitalia who were so looking forward to seeing our vulvas reproduced on the Qatari skyline.”
