The design of the Interiors by Koichi Takada Architects in the National Museum of Qatar is a Narrative of the Qatari history. The designs are an embodiment of the Qatari history, the beginnings of the trade, nomadic lifestyle and beautiful natural environment. Through many conversations with the local Qatari people, the designs evolved to translate a story into visual design and memorable experience.
Dahl Al Misfir（洞穴之光）位于卡塔尔的中心地带，是一个美丽的地下保护区，主要由纤维状石膏晶体组成，散发出微弱的月亮般的磷光。石膏可以出现在星团的形成中，例如著名的“沙漠玫瑰”，但也可以以其他形式的荧光和半透明形状结晶，与光相互作用并改变空间，一整天都在演变。
The Dahl Al Misfir (Cave of Light), located in the heart of Qatar, is a beautiful underground sanctuary formed largely from fibrous gypsum crystals that give off a faint, moon-like, phosphorescent glow. Gypsum can appear in formations of clusters, such as the famous ‘desert rose’, but can also crystallize in other forms of fluorescent and translucent shapes, interacting with light and transforming the space, evolving through the day.
博物馆商店的木墙灵感来自Dahl Al Misfir。它的有机建筑呼应了Koichi Takada将自然带回建筑的愿景，建立了通过设计将人与自然联系起来的关系。使用尖端的3D建模软件，我们实现了语言无法描述的曲线和曲面设计。
The timber walls of the museum shops were inspired by Dahl Al Misfir. Its organic architecture echoes Koichi Takada’s vision of bringing nature back into architecture, establishing relationships that connect people and nature through design. Using a cutting-edge 3D modeling software, we achieved a design of curves and surfaces that words fail to describe.
Imagine putting together the 40,000 wooden pieces of a three-dimensional puzzle? Each wooden piece, CNC-cut in Italy, is entirely unique so it could only fit with its exact complementary piece. They were assembled by hand in Doha by Italian master carpenter, Claudio Devoto and his team of artisans. The intensity of the design and craftsmanship pays homage to Jean Nouvel’s desert rose inspired architecture and celebrates the natural Qatari heritage of the desert-scape.
