Doha | Qatar National Museum of Qatar by Ateliers Jean Nouvel redefines Architecture
March this year the new landmark of Qatar, the National Museum of Qatar by Ateliers Jean Nouvel opened. The National Museum is dedicated to the history of Qatar and its architecture evokes the desert. The building design is inspired by a mineral formation commonly found in the deserts of the Gulf region. The ‘desert rose’ is a rock formed when minerals crystallize in the crumbly soil just below the surface of a shallow salt basin.
