From 2009 to 2011, Avesta Group has worked on the planning of Doha Cultural Forum project.


An Anchor-Piece For the City Centre Redevelopment Project

The Doha Cultural Forum is currently under construction at the centre of an ambitious $8 billion regeneration project by Msheireb Properties to develop the historic heart of Doha. The Cultural Forum is the anchor-piece of the original Heart of Doha masterplan which began the process of defining the sensitive redevelopment of the city centre. The design of the Cultural Forum, developed by the British architect John MacAslan+Partners, is rooted in Qatari and Islamic urban and domestic tradition. Its cultural and architectural references are dovetailed with the more innovative design of a new generation of international cultural buildings in Islamic countries.


An Ambitious Cultural Complex

The Cultural Forum of 47,000 sq.m due for completion in 2020 will contain two theatres, two cinemas, two large scale visual arts galleries and an academy education centre providing drama, music, visual art and media studios for participation and training as well as retail and restaurants. The Forum will bring together Qatari and international artists, performers, and the public in a place of shared encounter.
