This Qatar museum design takes stylistic cues from the form of the desert rose.

The venue spans across 560,000 square feet and makes a total of 11 galleries available to the public and tourists. A key point of interest is also the restored "historic palace of Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani."

The stunning building and layout of the Qatar museum were conceived of by French architect Jean Nouvel. The silhouette of the structure delivers a striking, sandy aesthetic, while the intricate positioning of the disks definitely renders the architectural composition quite extraordinary.

The inspiration for the design of the Qatar museum was chosen strategically to reference the narrative of the Middle Eastern region.
