Pass By: The Pearl-Qatar
The Pearl-Qatar is a high-end man-made island in Doha, Qatar. It covers four million square metres of reclaimed land and is home to approximately 33,000 residents.
Pass By: Katara Cultural Village
Keeping pace with the emerging global culture that emphasises the importance of diversity in human development, Katara Cultural Village is the largest and the most multidimensional cultural project of Qatar. It is a place where people come together to experience the cultures of the world.
West Bay is Doha’s contemporary Central Business District, which is composed of high density, mixed-use development consisting of high cost, high-rise skyscrapers.
Pass By: Museum of Islamic Art
The iconic waterfront building that houses the Museum of Islamic Art melds traditional Islamic architecture with 21st-century innovation. Designed by internationally renowned architect I.M. Pei, MIA’s complex includes a five-storey main building with an adjacent education wing connected by a large central courtyard. The main building features a high domed atrium within a central tower. The cream-coloured limestone exterior captures the changes in light and shade during the day.
Pass By: National Museum of Qatar
The complex form of the desert rose, found in Qatar’s arid desert regions, inspired the striking design of the NMoQ building, conceived by French architect Jean Nouvel. Completed in 2019, the museum’s building has been constructed around the centerpiece of Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani’s original palace – his family home and seat of the government for 25 years. The palace has been carefully restored and conserved so that it can be enjoyed by visitors and future generations to come.
Stadium 974 made history even before its first World Cup match. Constructed entirely from shipping containers and modular steel, it is the first fully demountable covered football stadium – showing Qatar’s commitment to cost-effective sustainability and daring design.
