I think cities all around the world should take note of the National Museum of Qatar's design. If more cultural centers resembled this look, I guarantee there would be a huge increase in the volume of visitors. Though some people would never dream of stepping foot inside a museum, you put a sweet package over it like this and you'll bring them in droves.

Designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, the National Museum of Qatar is one of many cultural buildings being built in the Emirates in the hopes of turning the region into a tourist destination. If more buildings like this go up in Qatar, I'm sure they won't have any trouble bringing people in. Stats for Saucer-Shaped Architecture Trending: Older & Chilly
