An outlandish new building in Doha declares a diminutive country’s big ambitions.


A "lagoon" lies between the museum and the Corniche promenade, animated by an installation of fountain sculptures by artist Jean-Michel Othoniel that evoke Arabic calligraphy.


The building is composed of 539 disks, which are the walls, ceilings, and structure.


The glass-fiber-reinforced concrete cladding consists of 76,000 panels, made from 3,000 master molds.


Limited glazing is deep-set, shading apertures from the intense sun.


The museum, which sits on the Doha Bay, forms a loop, with a large courtyard, called the Baraha, at its center. Linking the chain is the newly restored turn-of-the-century Palace of Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani, which was a family home and seat of government before housing Qatar's original national museum.


The 11 galleries are arranged in a chronological circuit, beginning with Qatar's geological and morphological origins.


The building's exterior planes are dramatically illuminated in the evening.
