Description

With architecture designed by I. M. Pei, an interior by J.-M. Wilmotte, and one of the world's finest collections, the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar, showcases the artistic achievements of the Muslim world in a dazzling way. Interviews with I.M. Pei and Jean-Michel Wilmotte reveal how the architects sought to express the museum's ties with tradition while allowing the building to become an integral part of the region's modern architectural environment. In addition, Dr. Sabiha Al Khemir, the director of the museum, discusses her vision for the display of the objects and the challenges of presenting Islamic art to the public. A selection of thirty of the museum's most important treasures, including metalwork, miniatures, carpets, calligraphy and ceramics, are featured with texts outlining their origins and significance.
