Doha Design

artopen-2 Although it is not exactly around the corner, Qatar is having a bit of moment right now — what with the opening of is I.M. Pei-designed Museum of Islamic Art (above), a new W Hotel in its capital, Doha, and now the upcoming Mousharaka | Icograda Design Week from February 28 — March 5. The event will include seminars and symposiums detailing the state of Gulf architecture and design along with numerous meet-and-greet opportunities for its expected global crowd. Mabrook!
