Ok!! Haven't seen any thread for this project. If there is one, then please Halawala, merge it! :D

Master Planning for Doha Cultural Village
Doha, Qatar

Cansult Maunsell was commissioned by the Doha Cultural village committee on behalf of H.H the Crown Prince to undertake the master planning, design, and construction management and supervision of this prestigious development in Doha.

The Cultural Village is located in the West Bay area of Doha with a total area of 99 hectares. The project was conceptualised to reflect the heritage of Qatar through traditional architecture that accommodates a large number of activities arranged in such a way as to reflect a historical and cultural theme throughout. In addition to theatres, libraries, art galleries and museums the Cultural Village includes an amphitheatre, heritage centres, and other academic facilities.

Cansult Maunsell has carried out the complete design of 40 different low-rise buildings together with a large amphitheatre, which will be the main feature of the village. The surrounding buildings will be used as retail outlets, coffee shops, museum facilities and market areas all designed to complement the historic theme of the site. The site is to be built on reclaimed coastal land to the north of Doha. The site was filled with imported fill to raise the height of the buildings and the amphitheatre, thus creating an enclosed traditional hillside community theme to the development.

Cansult Maunsell has also carried out the complete infrastructure works of this project, including bulk earthworks, access roads and internal roads, surface parking, landscaping, power supply, external lighting, irrigation and potable water network, fire fighting, sewerage network, stormwater drainage, telecommunication and marine works.

The project is currently being constructed under Cansult Maunsell supervision and construction management at a total construction value of US$82million.
