French architect [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
has unveiled his design for the new National Museum of Qatar.

The museum will comprise a series of interlocking discs of varying
dimensions and curvatures, which will form walls, ceilings, floors and

Each disc will be made of a steel truss structure clad in
glass-reinforced concrete and the voids between discs will be glazed.

This new structure will be built around an existing palace.

The information that follows is from the Qatar Museums Authority:
Marking the next stage of its program to develop Qatar into a hub of
culture and communications for the Gulf region and the world, the Qatar
Museums Authority (QMA) today revealed its plans for the new National
Museum of Qatar, as expressed in a striking and evocative design by
Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel.

Embodying the pride and traditions of Qatar’s people while offering
international visitors a dialogue about rapid change and modernization,
the National Museum of Qatar will be the setting for a program in which
entire walls become cinematic displays, “sonorous cocoons”, shelter
oral-history presentations and hand-held mobile devices guide visitors
through thematic displays of the collection’s treasures. Though built
around an historic structure, the Fariq Al Salatah Palace, which had
served as a museum of heritage since 1975, the National Museum of Qatar
is conceived and designed as a thoroughly new institution, in keeping
with the high aspirations that animate QMA.

Jean Nouvel’s design manifests both the active, dynamic aspect of the
Museum’s program and its crystallization of the Qatari identity, in a
building that, like a desert rose, appears to grow out of the ground and
be one with it. Prominently located on a 1.5 million-square-foot site
at the south end of Doha’s Corniche, where it will be the first monument
seen by travelers arriving from the airport, the building takes the
form of a ring of low-lying, interlocking pavilions, which encircle a
large courtyard area and encompass 430,000 square feet of indoor space.

In its organization, the building suggests the image of a
caravanserai—the traditional enclosed resting place that supported the
flow of commerce, information and people across desert trade routes—and
so gives concrete expression to the identity of a nation in movement.
The tilting, interpenetrating disks that define the pavilions’ floors,
walls and roofs, clad on the exterior in sand-colored concrete, suggest
the bladelike petals of the desert rose, a mineral formation of
crystallized sand found in the briny layer just beneath the desert’s
‘The National Museum of Qatar is the next world-class institution
that QMA is creating for our people and for our international
community’, stated Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa Bint Hamad Bin
Khalifa Al-Thani, Chairperson, Qatar Museums Authority. ‘Following the
very successful opening in 2008 of the Museum of Islamic Art, which
showcases an artistic tradition that spans half the globe, we now look
to Qatar’s immediate culture and environment—physical and immaterial,
historic and contemporary. With this newest project, announced in the
year when Doha is the Capital of Arab Culture, we move closer to
realizing QMA’s vision of building a forward-looking, sustainable
Abdulla Al Najjar, Chief Executive Officer of QMA, stated, ‘Taking as
its seed the historic palace that was Qatar’s oldest museum, this
dramatic project creates an unprecedented 21st century experience
celebrating the culture, heritage and future of Qatar and its people. It
is characteristic of the spirit of QMA that we have faithfully
preserved and incorporated the original palace, respecting this icon of
our past, while realizing the astonishing new vision that Jean Nouvel
has so brilliantly captured.’
According to Peggy Loar, Director of the National Museum of Qatar,
‘At this unparalleled new institution, Qataris will be able to discover
more about their immediate ancestors and their roots in the region,
learn about the formation of Qatar’s early cities and above all be
exposed to the historical, material culture and intangible heritage
represented in the collections. International visitors will come away
with a better understanding of the life of the Gulf region, of the
specific history of the Qatari people and of the initiatives underway
today to advance education, develop every aspect of culture and pursue a
program of sustainability. We are extremely fortunate that in realizing
this program we have the vision of Jean Nouvel, whose design is at once
a masterwork of contemporary architecture and an evocation of the
timeless desert.’
Commenting on his design, Jean Nouvel stated, ‘This museum is a
modern-day caravanserai. From here you leave the desert behind,
returning with treasured images that remain engraved on your memory. The
National Museum of Qatar will become the voice of a culture, delivering
a message of modernity, metamorphosis and the beauty that happens when
the desert meets the sea.’
Details of the Building
The National Museum of Qatar building will provide 86,000 square feet
of permanent gallery space, 21,500 square feet of temporary gallery
space, a 220-seat auditorium, a 70-seat food forum / TV studio, two
cafés, a restaurant and a museum shop. Separate facilities are provided
for school groups and special guests. Staff facilities include a
heritage research center, restoration laboratories, staff offices and
collection processing and storage areas. The Museum will be surrounded
by a 1.2 million-square-foot landscaped park that interprets a Qatari
desert landscape.
Inspired by the desert rose, the interlocking disks that compose the
building—some of them standing more or less upright and acting as
support elements, others lying more or less horizontal—are of varying
curvature and diameter. The disks are made of steel truss structures
assembled in a hub-and-spoke arrangement and are clad in glass fiber
reinforced concrete panels. Columns concealed within the vertical disks
carry the loads of the horizontal disks to the ground.
Glazed facades fill the voids between disks. Perimeter mullions are
recessed into the ceiling, floor and walls, giving the glazing a
frameless appearance when viewed from the outside. Deep disk-shaped
sun-breaker elements filter incoming sunlight.
Like the exterior, the interior is a landscape of interlocking disks.
Floors are sand-colored polished concrete, while the vertical disk
walls are clad in ‘stuc-pierre,’ a traditional gypsum- and lime-blended
plaster formulated to imitate stone.
Thermal buffer zones within the disk cavities will reduce cooling
loads, while the deep overhangs of the disks will create cool, shady
areas for outdoor promenades and protect the interior from light and
heat. Steel and concrete, the main materials of the building, will be
locally sourced and/or fabricated. The landscaping will feature sparse
native vegetation with low water consumption. Through these and other
sustainability measures, the Museum is working to achieve a USGBC LEED
Silver rating.
The Museum’s gardens are specifically designed for the intense
climate of Qatar. Plantings will include native grasses and indigenous
plants, such as pomegranate trees, date palms, herbs and the Sidra tree,
the national tree of Qatar. Landscaping will feature sand dunes and
stepped garden architecture to create sitting areas and spaces for the
Museum’s programs of tours and garden lectures.
Exhibitions and Collections
A tour of the Museum will take visitors through a loop of galleries
that address three major, interrelated themes. These are the natural
history of the Qatar peninsula, with its flora and fauna that have
adapted to this intense environment of sand and sea; the social and
cultural history of Qatar, with its traditions, values and stories that
spring from the close, age-old interaction between the people and the
natural world; and the history of Qatar as a nation, from the 18th
century to the dynamic present.
The displays and installations that explore these themes will
integrate exciting and involving audiovisual displays, some of them
realized on an architectural scale, with carefully selected treasures
from the Museum’s collections. These collections currently consist of
approximately 8,000 objects and include archeological artifacts,
architectural elements, heritage household and traveling objects,
textiles and costumes, jewelry, decorative arts, books and historical
documents. The earliest items date from the end of the last Ice Age
(about 8000 BC). The Bronze Age (about 2000 – 1200 BC) is represented,
as are the Hellenistic and early Islamic periods. The Museum also has
examples of weapons and other objects from the period of the tribal wars
and more contemporary decorative objects used for everyday living.
About the Qatar Museums Authority
The National Museum of Qatar is being developed by the Qatar Museums
Authority, which under the leadership of its Chairperson, H.E. Sheikha
Al Mayassa Bint Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, is transforming the State of
Qatar into a cultural hub of the Middle East. Qatar Museums Authority
was created in December 2005 to combine the resources of all museums in
the State of Qatar. The QMA’s vision revolves around the provision of a
comprehensive umbrella under which future plans will be drawn for the
development of national museums and the establishment of an effective
system for collecting, protecting, preserving and interpreting historic
sites, monuments and artifacts.
