Qatar Museums la lanciato un concorso di architettura internazionale, strutturato in tre fasi, per selezionare l'architetto che darà vita alla Galleria d'Arte che celebrerà l'immaginazione e la creatività a Doha.
Committed to artistic and architectural exploration, Qatar has established its capital Doha as a global art destination. Qatar's strategic national plan values contemporary art and culture as a powerful force, inspiring communities and stimulating a knowledge-based economy.
Qatar Museums is now searching for an architect to design the Art Mill in Doha. At circa one million square foot, the Art Mill will be one of the largest and most forward-looking art galleries in the world. The museum will require an accomplished design, with architectural integrity and presence, for the spectacular and historic waterfront site reserved for the project. The new institution will complete Doha's acclaimed sequence of museums devoted to art, including notably, I.M. Pei's Museum of Islamic Art, and Jean Nouvel's forthcoming National Museum of Qatar.
A new model for international design competitions, the Art Mill International Design Competition is structured to allow a highly focused, three-stage search. Qatar Museums is specifically seeking out new - as well as established - talent looking for architects with evident capability who are on the threshold of distinction.
The selection process is open to practising architects with at least seven years' experience post final professional qualification. To be considered for the initial long-list, please complete the online template (ZIP archive, 140 KB) - two written statements along with relevant images of past projects - and send this via the electronic entry form by 14:00 BST June 26, 2015.
