Al Mirqab is at the heart of Doha, a link between Souk Waqif and the Qatar National Museum, embracing the Corniche as its northern border and holding a mix of uses. With great potential comes a great responsibility to transform the area into a truly positive and significant urban experience that would catalyze a wider Downtown Doha regeneration initiative.

As part of lead designer Makower Architects’ team, ARRUS conducted zone-wide surveys, and the full 3D modelling and views sequence that narrates the urban experience from street to piazza, to mosque, to parking, to park, to work.

Creating a network of public spaces for residents, visitors and workers of the area.

Turning featureless places into unique opportunities to meet, play, rest, walk, work, park, shop, eat, pray.
