Doha mosque

The tradition of Arabian opulence sometimes exists uncomfortably with modern design
The necessity for opulence defies the Mies van de Rohe’s assertion that less is more
In Qatar more means more

But sometimes Doha does simplicity
Here neatly converting a pre-fabricated site office with the addition of some familiar, cut sheet steel, motifs
Maybe this is a Mosque for migrant workers, outside the State Audit Bureau of Qatar
