Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture, and Design recently hosted “Identify Qatar: (No) Limits of Architecture” conference, where a number of  leading international architects and city planners talked about innovative architectural projects in Qatar, defined similarities between construction in northern Russia and Doha, as well as about the most spectacular buildings. 

More than 800 visitors attended the Conference, and more than 400 watched the conference online, said a statement. The conference opened with a welcome word by Ambassador of Qatar to Russian Federation, Fahad bin Mohamed Al Attiyah. At the lecture “Past, Future, and Present of Qatar Architecture”, Ibrahim Mohamed AI Jaidah, CEO of Arab Engineering Bureau Qatar, told the audience how the architecture of Qatar had changed from the pre-oil to post-oil era and whether it was possible to build a glass-and-concrete skyscraper while sticking to traditions.
