While modern, the architecture of Msheireb is inspired by Qatar’s heritage – its proportion, simplicity, space, light, layering, and response to the country’s climate. The entire project aims to reverse the pattern of energy-hungry development in Doha. MDD will also house the Doha Design District, a cultural hub for regional and international talent.
