Publisher's description: This is the most comprehensive publication on the stunning new architecture of Qatar, highlighting more than fifty projects... Qatar's landscape is dotted with structures designed by some of the most famous architects in the world, from the Doha Tower by Jean Nouvel, to the Museum of Islamic Art by I.M. Pei and Weill Cornell Medical College by Arata Isozaki. Situated in Education City, just outside of Doha, are buildings for American universities such as Carnegie Mellon University, designed by Ricardo Legorreta, a world-class hospital by Cesar Pelli, buildings by Rem Koolhaas such as the Qatar National Library, and the Al Shaqab Equestrian Academy -- a riding venue located in the heart of Education City. The Emir of Qatar, his wife, Sheikha Moza, and his daughter, Sheika Al Mayassa, plan to make Qatar the cultural heart of the new Middle East with an architectural heritage to match.
