Old Doha Heritage Trail

The Old Doha Heritage Trail connects Doha’s Souk Waqif and Msheireb with the run-down but historic area of Asmakh – Najada. From there it reaches far across the old city centre, connecting many of the city’s  original neighbourhoods which are today a patchwork of old and new; unloved, under threat and unrecognised for the richness of memory and urban character they hold.

The trail looks at the spaces of the city and examines how they can be woven together – literally the repair of a historic fabric. In so doing, we will find that areas which were formerly of low economic value will become some of the most sought after addresses in the city.

Layers of movement and place-making: finding synergies between public space, urban heritage and the making of value – both cultural and economic - Stitching the City – urban repair
