Look up! Msheireb Downtown!

Here is my photograph that was taken at Msheireb Downtown Doha during the last Eid al-Adha. I had to wake up earlier than usual to capture the surroundings during its golden hour. Since this is my first time exploring this part of Doha, I decided to read a little bit of the place. Msheireb Downtown was designed by leading architects, city planners, and engineers to which many of them are from the US. This depicts a strong trust of Qatar to the American construction designers in which the project features sustainable designs that comply with the Global Sustainability Assessment System and will produce less waste and significantly reduce the carbon footprint. This mega project, in my opinion, will also become a symbol of the Qatar-US cultural ties that will remain unwavering for many generations to come.
