Museum of Islamic Art; Doha, Qatar

This beautiful structure is Doha’s Museum of Islamic Art; Doha Bay in Qatar.  This building was, ironically, designed by Chinese American architect I.M. Pei .  He was 91 at the time he began working on this but it took much cajoling from the government to get the “master of modern architecture” out of retirement to research and tour the Middle East for six months to create this.  Within the museum, therein lies a wide array of Islamic artifacts from all over the world.
