Burj Doha

Doha Tower, also known as Burj Doha is an iconic high rise tower located in Qatar. Doha Tower was designed by renowned French architect Jean
Nouvel. It has no central core, leaving more internal space available to its occupants. The design is unique, the first skyscraper with internal reinforced concrete dia-grid columns, which form a cross (X) shape that connects with the eye-catching cylindrical facade. The design expresses the local culture, connecting the very modern with ancient Islamic designs. Islamic screens were designed to shade the building from high temperatures as well as the unpleasant sand residue found on glass throughout the region.
