Description of this Book

Qatari Style investigates the architectural identity of Qatar, which celebrates the warmth and hospitality of the Middle East. The selected interiors are pioneering examples of how new and foreign influences can be absorbed harmoniously into the local a rchitecture and culture whilst retaining the traditional charm. Qatar, a small peninsula in the Arabian Gulf, was and is a central hub of many trading and migration routes. A unique and diverse architectural style has developed here that is rich in colou rs and opulent details. The Qatari style is famous for its successful fusion of the different influences and the preservation of traditional character whilst at the same time progressing into the modern age. Ibrahim Mohamed Jaidah, an internationally fam ous architect from Qatar, presents in this lavishly illustrated publication a selection of outstanding examples of Qatari interior architecture.
