15.05.2017 - Art Mill International Design Competition
Qatar Museums, Doha, Katar
Malcolm Reading Consultants, England
Open design competition
The Art Mill International Design Competition, a global search to find an outstanding team to design one of the world’s leading cultural centres.
Doha is already home to some of the world’s most inventive and creative buildings, with more due for completion in time for the World Cup celebrations in 2022.
The proposed site for the Art Mill was originally a key node within the Arabian Gulf port, essential for the import of grain. It is presently occupied by Qatar Flour Mills, which sits to the east of Museum of Islamic Art (MIA). The site has a distinctive open aspect with three sides adjoining Doha Bay, and the other linking the city. The mill operation will now move to purpose-built new facilities.
