World renowned architect Zaha Hadid has designed a beautiful stadium for Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup, and it just so happens that the stadium looks just like a vagina. While the interior has a more traditional rounded rectangle shape, to fit the soccer field, from above, everyone agrees that it looks like lady parts. Though Hadid’s work often has sensuous curves, she was offended by the suggestion that she’d built a vagina stadium:

“It’s really embarrassing that they come up with nonsense like this,” Hadid told Time Magazine. “What are they saying? Everything with a hole in it is a vagina? That’s ridiculous.”

No, not everything with a hole in it is vaginal, just as how not everything that is longer than it is wide is phallic. However the “vagina stadium,” as it’s being called, has earned its name. And really, it has nothing to be ashamed of. In the field of architecture that looks like private parts, the vagina stadium may be the best of the bunch. It’s certainly more aesthetically pleasing than the hilariously phallic “penis church,” recently noticed in Illinois.

The Guardian reported that home owners are worried that their houses might lose value now that the world has noticed that they live next to a giant penis church. But the vagina stadium? That will only make property values rise.

And hey, here in the U.S., our symbol of national pride is basically a giant phallic symbol.

Yes, Hadid is understandably indignant, but really, the vagina stadium looks is a great addition to the world of unintentionally evocative architecture.
