Museum of Modern Arab Art in Doha, Qatar

Designed by Rafael Viñoly, the Museum of Modern Arab Art is dedicated for Sheikh Hassan Bin Mohammed Al-Thani who has great collection ranging from articles, quranic manuscript, and abstract painting. Covering 33,000 sqm, the exterior of the museum blends into the landscape, and I think it looks great. The completion of the project is expected due in 2011. The building is set into a landscape of sculpture gardens and outdoor terraces which take advantage of the favorable climate, and also has provision for visitor parking.
