Msheireb

A mixed-use masterplan of 800,000 sqm on a 35 ha site in the Heart of Doha. Tim Makower’s role was the ‘Architectural Language Advisor’, coordinating the architecture and urban spaces of the site, creating a new Qatari vernacular. Connecting Qatar’s Past and Future, the project builds on traditional characteristics of simplicity, solidity and passive low energy design using 21st Century technology. Creating pedestrian-friendly spaces for the city, the project encourages Qatari families to return to dwell in the city centre. As ‘Architectural Language Advisor’, he commented on buildings from conception through to construction. Individual Msheireb projects also appear in ‘past portfolio’.
