I.M. Pei’s iconic art museum bridges Islamic history and Doha’s urban growth.
The Museum of Islamic Art in Doha is a stunning space that showcases an extensive range of art and artefacts from the Islamic world, offering conservation displays and immersive exhibitions. Set on an island off a peninsula, the Museum is composed of two cream coloured limestone buildings connected across a central courtyard and encircled by an informal park.
The landmark building draws influences from ancient Islamic architecture, a theme that is extended throughout Cracknell’s landscape design which links the Museum to Doha Harbour. The surrounding park includes seating and relaxation areas, a function lawn and dynamic waterfront promenade providing framed views of the Museum.
