An old flour mill that sits off of Qatar’s Corniche will soon be redesigned into an art gallery and cultural center.
The idea is based on retaining its existing silos and adding new ones that would act as cooling chimneys throughout the site.
The mill sits on prime waterfront property that is located next to the Museum of Islamic Art and near the under-construction National Museum of Qatar.
The plan is to reinvent the 80,000 sq meter industrial site into gallery and exhibition space with a “contemporary design.”
Education and conference facilities, conservation and storage areas and dedicated family spaces will also be included.
