The select list competition was focused on drawing from Qatari culture to create public furnishings on the streets, plazas and public transportation corridors of the new “Heart of Doha”. The design team visited numerous cultural sites in Qatar, researched the history of the area and the ever evolving traditions and habits of the people to create contextual public furnishings. The final collection is a rich and diverse group of design solutions that meld well with the architecture and create wonderment as pedestrian pass through this unique urban environment.
Axis Facades provided material applications during initial concept design and proof of concept stages. We provided unit cost estimates and technical narratives for all public furnishings, lighting, security bollards and tram shelters.
