The Cultural Forum fuses Qatari urban and domestic traditions with innovative design to create a welcoming and open place, functionally, creatively and urbanistically - a dynamic civic hub bringing together Qatari and international artists, performers and the public. The building's atmosphere is inspired by the traditional Qatari courtyard house. A central atrium is surrounded by a dramatic series of processional stairs and surmounted by a skylight and a patterned screen inspired by Qatari motifs, diffusing light and producing artfully shadowed internal volumes.
