The National Museum of Qatar

Sat 19-01-2019 - Posted 2 Years ago

The National Museum of Qatar is so complicated in its design that it could almost be mistaken for an origami masterpiece. The white building has sharp and curving edges and, on an architectural level, seems almost impossible. The building is currently under construction and is gradually making the architect’s jaw-dropping design a reality. The museum’s design is inspired by the desert rose, a natural phenomenon formed by crystals in certain climates. The architect believed that the desert rose represented the passage of time and wanted to embody this idea in the design of the building.
