Qatar National Library Building in Doha
The physical impact of books has been important in terms of my entire formation. The first books that fascinated me were the fairy tales of Grim illustrated by Gustave Doré. I still remember the physical nature of those books as one of the strongest memories of my entire life. In the 1950s I would spend time in the library of the Stedelijk Museum – almost like in a living room.

Oxygen Park, Education City, Doha
This new public space is designed for health and wellbeing in a desert environment. It was created with the local community in mind, providing open space for exercise, rest, and play. It is inspired by the wind eroded rocks and fluid land formations of the desert. The path and running tracks are embedded in the topography to create an exciting training ground with looping tracks, cooled tunnel segments, and steep hills.
