National Museum of Qatar Gift Shops

Retail interior

Inspired by Dahl Al Misfir (Cave of Light), the National Museum of Qatar Gift Shops bring nature back into architecture, establishing relationships that connect people and nature through design. Using 3D modeling software, the shops are a three-dimensional puzzle, comprising 40,000 individual wooden pieces. All pieces are unique and only fit together with one other element, requiring they be assembled by hand on-site. The design and craftsmanship for the Gift Shops represent a visually unique example of architecture and retail design that is culturally rooted and sympathetic to the local environment, human experience and place.
