Qatar, like many other Middle East countries, is going through a period of rapid urbanisation. New cities of eye-catching buildings & epic planning are being built as arenas for consumerism, finance and cultural showcasing.

These photographs from 2015 capture it unpolished and exposed. A bare structure of ambition, extravagance & innovation carving its own space into the city backdrop.
