Dohaland's future project Musheireb will transform the historic downtown area of Doha into a modern center. But Qatar's historical architecture and local construction techniques are a great inspiration for the architects of the initial phase: Adjaye Associates, Allies + Morrison, Dar Al Omran, John McAslan and Mossessian.
The Museum of Islamic Art was designed in 2000 by architect I.M. Pei and is situated on a man-made island in Doha's lagoon. The building's architecture was inspired by the Ahmad Ibn Tulun Mosque in Cairo
