The Museum of Islamic Art (19 photos)
It isn’t often that a building stuns – literally. However, this is the case
with the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, the capital of Qatar. Traditional Islamic
Architecture meets the twenty first century to spectacular effect.
Nothing is done by halves here. Even the palm lines entrance
(and entrancing is perhaps the right word) fills the visitor with expectation.
Sublimely designed by IM Pei, the museum opened its doors to the public
less than two years ago.
