I'd love to see Doha get a supertall to break up its flat skyline.

we're probably never going to have anything taller than aspire tower. This whole competition doesn't really matter to us, we have better thing to do.

oh c'mon now, we do need tall skylines... every person I have invited to see Doha was not impressed at all by our skylines or Doha overall. Not that tall of skylines and lack of creativity in them. we need to stop building ugly low rise cheap buildings in Qatar and label them as " traditional Qatari buildings" letís all face it that our past was bitter we don't have that much of creativity in our poor looking architecture, therefore we need to standout by leaning into that contemporary architecture just like Dubai with very tall skyscrapers and modern looking. Thatís the only way we could draw tourists to us and be authentic in the upcoming 100 years rather than still looking poor in the future

I disagree, Musherib is contemporary Qatari architecture and it's way better than any building in Dubai. The 'modern looking' building you seem to like in Dubai will look like a 90's car show room 20 years from now.

Thank you, my opinion is somewhat the same.

The aim here would be "timeless" architecture.

Musherib is an amazing place, so is the cluster of high rises at Cornish / west bay. In fact there is enough room for low rises as well as high rises. It is the diversity and variety in architecture which makes a place more interesting. Similarly, Doha is a great city, so are Dubai, Singapore, London, Paris and many other cities around the world. We can appreciate each city for its heritage as well as modern developments without comparing it with other places and without criticizing other places .

Agree with you fellas - Musheireb is arguably my one favorite development in the Gulf right now. Everything from the clean lines, unadorned geometry, simplicity of form and relevance of materials keeps it distinctly Qatari and lends it an appropriateness to Doha/the general built environment that will outlive any trend and find itself attractive in any time period. A successful exercise in 'less is more.'

Easily beats anything clad in alucobond. Take note, rest of the GCC.
