This small but intricate public building containing exhibition and education spaces, a majlis and a panoramic terrace was conceived as a series of built forms following the principles of the Seven Steps architectural guidelines This building, which sets up a dialogue between the old and the new, is softly modelled, its forms simple and robust, floating on the Doha Corniche. Grand proportions and simple surfaces of natural materials are offset against special areas of fine detail incorporating contemporary patterns inspired by Qatari motifs.
