Museum of Islamic Art Deluxe Edition
"With architecture by I. M. Pei, interior design by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, and home of one of the world’s finest collections, the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) in Doha, Qatar showcases the artistic achievements of the Muslim world in a dazzling way. Interviews with I.M. Pei and Jean-Michel Wilmotte reveal how the architects sought to express the museum’s ties with tradition while allowing the building to become an integral part of the region’s modern architectural environment. A selection of 30 of the museum’s most important treasures, including metalwork, miniatures, carpets, calligraphy and ceramics, are featured with texts outlining their origins and significance."
