A New Museum Emerges From The Sand. A New Voice For Qatar and Its People.

Celebrities gather for The National Museum of Qatar opening in Doha, Qatar. Among many are Johnny Depp, Zac Posen, Olivier Rousteing, Naomi Campbell, Natalia Vodiyanova, Victoria Beckham and more.

Museum was designed by Jean Nouvel, the Pritzker Prize-winning French architect. The multifaceted structure resembling a giant desert rose sits across from the bustling Doha Corniche, the main waterfront promenade in the Qatari capital.

The futuristic, sand-coloured structure, located near Doha's airport highway, is likely to be among the first buildings visitors will spot when arriving in the city.

The museum is designed as a free-form space, in a way that does not include doors, and is meant to offer visitors a fluid experience as they move through time, space and themes. The building is a symbol of Qatar's culture and tradition.
