skin of the building is a beautiful expression of the local culture,

Doha Tower, Doha, Qatar
The distinctive cylindrical form is elegant and efficient, creating a distinctive new landmark for the fast-growing Qatar capital. The façade is constructed of multi-layered patterns invoking ancient Islamic screens designed to shade buildings from the sun. The Doha tower is the first tall building to use reinforced concrete diagrid columns in a cross shape. There is no central core, maximizing the interior space available for tenants.
