Jean Nouvel Unveils Sustainably-Designed National Museum of Qatar | Inhabitat « ArquitecturaS

Yesterday the Qatar Museum Authority and Jean Nouvel (Pritzker Prize-winning architect) unveiled plans for the new National Museum of Qatar. The cultural center is inspired by the desert architecture and lives of the Bedouin culture as well as a deep-seated respect for the hot desert climate.
"The new museum will be the first monument travelers see from the airport and the sustainable design of the complex and surrounding landscapes will help prove Qatar to be a forward-looking country."
