The Doha Convention Centre and Tower will be a stunning addition to the skyline of Doha, the capital of Qatar. The design by the Chicago-based architectural firm Jahn for the 1.2 billion US dollar project is both innovative and inspiring. Werner Sobek is responsible for the structural design.
Innovative and Inspiring with a View of the Sea
The tower, which has a total of 105 storeys, will offer a view of the entire city as well as the sea. The building will house a hotel with 300 rooms and 80 flats as well as 300 flats. The exhibition centre, located next to the tower, offers 100,000 m² of exhibition space and will become an important address for regional and international trade fairs and exhibitions.
