The Qatar-TotalEnergies Playground, located in the outdoor National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) was inaugurated on 4 December 2022 by Her Excellency Sheikha Al-Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chairperson of Qatar Museums and Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer at TotalEnergies. It will provide a unique experience for families to explore and discover the story of energy in Qatar through meaningful play.
The playground is part of the partnership between TotalEnergies and Qatar Museums and was designed by Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL) with the construction work carried out by Ashghal.
It is designed to provide a fully immersive and educational experience in which visitors of all ages can learn about the various energies deployed in Qatar from the oil, gas and liquefied natural gas to the renewable energies and electricity. Sustainability is also addressed through topics such as carbon capture, recycling of polymers and road safety.
The playground’s maze-like architecture includes 15 interactive playing pods, one per energy and a series of crawl tunnels in the form of oversized ‘pipes’ for children form pathways. The playground also contains a water play area and aims to create a sustainable outdoor environment that is stimulated by human energy. Other features include dry mist fans arranged to provide more comfortable microclimates throughout the pods.
Finally, the playground’s design is sustainable as it is partially powered by green electricity from nearby installed solar panels.
