Cultural Village Foundation – Katara has officially opened the “Geometric study of sand line in the Qatari architecture” exhibition, featuring seven projects and a sculpture designed by Architect Mohanad Barakat. Barakat revealed the display features seven of his designs inspired by the sand lines. This exhibit explains how they study the lines and structures of sand dunes. How the wind creates lines and integrates them as a design to buildings.
When coming in the exhibition housed at Building 18, Gallery 2, a massive sculpture of sand lines can be seen. Barakat explained this is how he studied the sand lines where he created a carving in a 3D model as a representation to the audience. A part of the display details how he sketches the patterns and incorporates them to form a building.
There are seven projects alongside the 3D model which are featured in the exhibition. One is a museum for rally cars, a hotel, two resorts, a group of gardens, a group of villas, and a palace.
About the two resorts, he disclosed that it will be relaxation and enjoyment for the public. Each room in the resort has a spectacular view. The designs are made on how the stones are leveling. The architect also drew inspiration from a rock formation. His group of gardens design is a mixture of stone and sea mountain lines.
