Exact details of OMA’s design for the new headquarters for the Qatar Foundation in Doha are not yet disclosed, however New York City-based photographer Yueqi Li show has shared some images of the completed project.
The main building of the foundation is a cubic tower measuring 57 meters tall and 29,000 meters of office space.
Comprising two stacked volumes, the headquarters feature a facade of white, precast concrete with a grid of square windows and openings that reveal glass and aluminum interiors.
There are three main parts of the structure – the executive tower, staff tower, and Her Highness’s Wing, named after the foundation’s co-founder Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser.
A central atrium provides access to each section, while glass bridges and internal balconies connect them. A roof designed like the facade allow natural light into the interiors.
Between the two volumes is a large outdoor terrace that is column-free, so the upper volume appears to hover above it.
