Lonely Planet (UK) - - Amazing Architecture -

It looks like a vast in­sect or a new kind of fu­tur­is­tic ve­hi­cle, but the Qatar Fac­ulty of Is­lamic Stud­ies, in Doha’s Ed­u­ca­tion City, is in fact a new kind of place of learn­ing – one that melds faith, knowl­edge and moder­nity. As Qatar po­si­tions as a cul­ture hub un­der Her High­ness Sheikha Moza Bint Nasser, this building pro­poses learn­ing in its very fab­ric, with five large col­umns rep­re­sent­ing the five pil­lars of Is­lam and Ara­bic cal­lig­ra­phy tak­ing the mes­sage for­ward in sci-fi man­ner. hbku.edu.qa
