Museum Of Islamic Art In Doha By I. M. Pei

Built on a man-made island on the edge of Doha harbour, the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar, houses one of the world’s most complete collections of Islamic artifacts. Designed by Pritzker Prize laureate I. M. Pei the building is an architectural icon with the geometric patterns and aesthetic details of the art and architecture of the Muslim world. Inside the building, a soaring atrium with a stainless steel domed ceiling above the grand staircase is a stunning centrepiece.
