Completed in 1983, the campus of Qatar University emerged as a colossal modern addition to Doha’s flat desert landscape. Yet, it’s practical reference to Qatar’s native building forms creates a sense of cultural homage. The structure includes distinct architectural elements – geometric forms, courtyards, wooden screens and stained glass panes – repeated obsessively to create a space reminiscent of the winding interior of a souk (an Arab market or Bazaar). Architect: Kamal El Kafrawi.

MUDUN Urban Cultures in Transit | Qatar University
"In many metropolises of the Arab world, growing urbanisation has resulted in a new cosmopolitan cultural landscape. Baghdad, Dubai, Cairo or Tunis are cities with a pulsating urban vitality that oscillates between a deep connection to tradition and a general openness for the global community and technological progress. This dichotomy provides room for critical debates, subcultures and avant-garde artistic movements. The exhibition critically examines the transformation of these cities and their people.
This project is a cooperation between the Vitra Design Museum and the creators of the magazine Brownbook, who have been documenting contemporary urban culture in the Middle East and North Africa for the past ten years."
