The Diwan Al Amiri in Doha, Qatar, is the governmental headquarters of the state of Qatar. Opened in 1989, this extraordinary complex is the symbolic, ceremonial and administrative centre of the State. This is the first book to properly document the building and is packed full of specially-commissioned photographs by a leading architectural photographer. It shows the entire building from its dramatic exterior, through the monumental interior spaces down to the intricate craftsmanship applied to all the decorative details. Beautifully designed and produced and accompanied by an authoritative text, this book will fascinate those interested in the history of Qatar and its culture.
