Qatar Foundation Headquarters | EDUCATION CITY | U/C

The three buildings include the 20,000 m2 Headquarters for Qatar Foundation, a 5,200 m2 new branch for the Rand Policy Institute and a 42,000 m2 Central Library.




The Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (Qatar Foundation) has undertaken the first of its kind at Education City to provide world-class education by creating branch campuses of leading established academic institutions. These will be the facilities of the highest quality and design.

The Qatar Foundation will be assisted in implementing this goal by Qatar Petroleum, who administers the contracts of the Education City Project on behalf of Qatar Foundation.

It is the Qatar Foundation's intention that a world-renowned Signature Design Architect be involved with particular emphasis on the Concept Design and Schematic Design and, thereafter, providing Peer Review through the Design Development and Working Drawing phases of the project. The Qatar Foundation shall separately appoint an Executive Architect to work alongside the Design Architect.

The Executive Architect must ensure that all Sub-Consultants and Specialty Sub-Consultants under the management of the Executive Architect are fully engaged through all stages. At the end of the Schematic Design phase, the Executive Architect will undertake the full execution of the Design Development, Working Drawings and Tender Documents phases.

As student in EC, I think it goes very well, not all buildings have the same design.

I even made a 3D model year and a half ago in sketch up (for HVAC class).
