Doha sport city tower,300m











Client : Doha City - Asian Olympic games 2006 - Qatar

Designers : Hadi Seenan - AREP (architect) - Ove ARUP (Engineer) - MaP3 (facade design)

Data : Height : 300 m, facade surface : 30 000 m2,

Budget : 140 000 000 Euros

Expected completion : End 2006

Doha City has planned the construction of a 300 m tower to support the olympic flame at the top, and to become after the games a high standard hotel, with revolving restaurant and sport museum.

The design is based on a central concrete core, covered with a steel mesh facade, with a varying perforation ratio, vertically and on the azimuthal angle, in order to differenciate North and South facades.

It might be part of Asia, but no one really conisders Middle East part of Asia. If you say your an Arab, it automatically means your a 'Middle Eastern'. If you talk about Chinesse, Pakistanis, Japanesse, they're always considered 'Asians'

Middle East is a region on its own, and there is nothing wrong with that.

According to one of the guys who is a member in Qatar forum ,manjop –mp said it's approved and he takes a picture for the what he think it's the foundation work site of this tower…
You know what , a lot of the sport city project had been built without any spreading their project to public and I guess it's part of Qatar Olympic committee strategy which they always using surprises .
I'm still not sure about if it's approved or not, but from what I saw in manjop –mp picture … I can till this tower is going to be built

a pic of the foundation work that was taking by manjop mp

Asian Olympic Games?

Since when was that sanctioned by the IOC?

Still a cool looking tower.

DUH!

Middle East might be a region but it is not a continent. Pakistan falls under the Indian subcontinent or the southern Asia and Pakistanis are not even called Asians that much. Unlike people of China, Japan, Korea and their neighbouring countries whom fall under the Eastern Asian region, but they are the ones that mostly called Asians.

“If you say your an Arab, it automatically means your a 'Middle Eastern'.”
That’s true, however, it doesn’t mean Middle Eastern people are all Arabs, because those Iran, and Occupied Palestine are not all Arabs.

BTW, Middle Eastern countries are all Asian except Egypt. The rest of the Arab world in Africa is not part of the Middle East.

Note: there is no such a thing as the Middle Eastern Cup or Games, but there is the Arab World Cup.

I know that you know these stuffs Sultan, but your post needed some clarification.

^ And four years ago they were held in Busan, Korea.

I was in Busan for one day during the games (work related) and happen to stay on the hotel where most of the teams were staying. The UAE team had the most luxurious bus
