The National Museum in Qatar

The new National Museum has been opened in the Emirate of Qatar in March 2019. The spectacular building by Frenchman Jean Nouvel is intended to evoke associations with a desert rose. The architect explains that he was looking for a symbol for the National Museum - to evoke Qatar’s heritage and future - and considers his design to embody both. The ring-shaped building comprising 53,000 square meters of floor space and rising up to a height of 40 m is sited directly next to the historic palace of Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani, the former Emir of Qatar. This landmark has been redesigned and integrated into the museum as the central exhibition location.
