National Museum of Qatar via  The Attic: Desert rose to bloom in Qatar
Jean Nouvel presents designs for new museum - With a design inspired by the form of the desert rose, Jean Nouvel presented his plans Wednesday at MoMA in New York City for the new National Museum in Qatar. .... The museum is a modern-day caravanserai, which is the traditional enclosed resting place that supported the flow of commerce, information and people across desert trade route, Nouvel said in a statement.  ..... “From here you leave the desert behind, returning with treasured images that remain engraved on your memory,” he said.  “The National Museum of Qatar will become the voice of a culture, delivering a message of modernity, metamorphosis and the beauty that happens when the desert meets the sea.”
