National Museum of Qatar - Collector’s Edition - Arabic
National Museum of Qatar catalogue, both VIP and trade editions, received a ‘Silver A’ design award from A’ Design Award & Competition, 2022.
A beautiful visual exploration of the extraordinary National Museum of Qatar, designed by world-renowned architect Jean Nouvel and inspired by the iconic form of the desert rose. The book echoes the characteristics of this natural phenomenon through the choice of material and finishes, creating an ‘object’ that, like the museum, appears to be emerging from the sand. A timeless yet contemporary publication, showcasing the new museum architecture with the historic palace at its centre. It captures the unique qualities of the buildings and takes the reader on a journey through the immersive museum experience; honouring Qatar’s heritage while portraying the country’s openness to modernity and innovation. Written by Philip Jodidio and featuring breathtaking photography by Iwan Baan and Khalifa Al Obaidly, the book is produced in English and Arabic. This limited deluxe collector's edition is bound in luxurious suede, featuring a range of fine paper stocks, and 60 additional pages of breathtaking images. The beautiful book is presented in a clam-shell case and includes a copy of the speech given by His Highness Sheikh Tamim Al Thani at the opening of the museum in March 2019. This is the perfect gift and a lasting tribute to the National Museum of Qatar.
