A modern takeon a traditional dhow

Designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, Qatar’s contemporary structure evokes the iconic elements of the nation’s coat of arms. The large, white building is formed of two curving triangular sections, which echo the prow and billowing sail of a traditional dhow boat, ascending nearly 15 metres at its highest point.
