We are very proud that the Chilean architectural firm Elemental, around Pritzker Price holder Alejandro Aravena, his partner Diego Torres, and schlaich bergermann partner, together with Transsolar and Stantec, are the announced winners of the Art Mill International Design Competition.
A spectacular and historic site in the centre of Doha was chosen as a location for the art museum which will become one of the world’s leading cultural institution, exhibiting soon the Art Mill, I.M. Pei’s Museum of Islamic Art and Jean Novel’s forthcoming National Museum of Qatar.
The design team was inspired by the monumental grain silos that are the industrial legacy of the original Flour Mills on the site, which have produced bread for the State since the 1980s and took this as the leading design for this art gallery.
We are very much looking forward to develop this unique and exposed project together with such a dedicated and charismatic design team, and of course to add another successful project to our Qatar portfolio which includes the Al Wakrah, Al Bayt, Al Rayyan and 5th Precinct stadium and many others.
schlaich bergermann partner will be responsible for the complete structural engineering.
