Ibrahim Jaidah Creates The Al Shaqab Building

Ibrahim Jaidah, the project leader of the highlighted project Award Winning Al Shaqab Building explains, Al Shaqab school design celebrates the aesthetics and function of the Islamic and Qatari vernacular architecture. The design re-purposed the vernacular courtyard and wind towers into a dynamic social space for students which is naturally light throughout the day. The corners of the courtyard comprise internal gardens, where the architect has managed to combine the aspects of earth, water and sky. Al Shaqab is honored on the Qatar currency 100 riyal note and is very often referred to as the architectural renaissance of the traditional Qatari identity. .
