This series has been produced over 3 shoots during Msheireb’s 11 year construction.
Doha like other cities in the region, has transformed itself in a matter of decades into a ready-made arena for global finance and cultural showcasing. An unprecedented, streamlined urbanisation to immediately put itself on the map.
Msheireb Downtown Doha is an ambitious re-build of an existing city centre district. Fully completed in 2021 – in time for the city hosting the World Cup - it is a striking and ambitious urban statement that has moved beyond eye-catching skyline pieces to a more considered use of regional design; Stacked block buildings of varied scale create shaded walkways & spaces, and allow for terrace and rooftop use. Street alignments with staggered and perforated facades provide further shade and enhance air circulation.
It is a hypnotic piece of design that breathes new life into cultural and religious features. This series delves into this entwinement of light & shade, surface & detail, contemporary & traditional, to present an enchanting & charmed place.
