National Museum of Qatar

Arch. Jean Nouvel


The Desert Rose

The National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) has recently opened to the public, expressing the pride of Doha’s diverse community and offering a new museum experience.

Designed by Jean Nouvel, the Pritzker Prize-winning French architect, the museum architecture symbolically evokes the desert, a giant desert rose, sitting across the Doha Corniche. This unique building embraces the newly restored Palace of Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al-Thani, which itself represents the heart of Qatari national identity.

As Nouvel said at a press briefing in Doha: "This is not just an open exhibition space. This is a building with various dimensions - high and low ceilings - a combination that is expressive and unique in the world". Nouvel added that his team had to meet enormous challenges to construct a building with great curved disks, intersections, and cantilevered angles.

The museum, shaped like a desert rose to "symbolize the mysteries of the desert’s concretions and crystallisations", features a 220-seat auditorium, research centre, food court, cafe, retail shops, restaurants, and multiple laboratories.

The museum provides a wide range of ways to participate, to learn or to relax. And Figueras has had the honour to equip a 220-seat auditorium, giving answer to the high-end seating requirements of Jean Nouvel Ateliers, to achieve unique design and finishing features for this exciting project.

For those visiting this futuristic building, which it is likely to become a unique visitor experience, we are proud to have been involved in the equipment of an auditorium that for sure will contribute to connect cultures, to celebrate heritage of Qatar and to foster dialogue.
