L’air et la lumière sont les maîtres mots de la très moderne bibliothèque nationale du Qatar (Qatar National Library, QNL), où chaque livre est visible.
Designed by Rem Koolhaas, the diamond shaped exterior of the library belies its spacious interior, which prioritizes light and visibility. The bookshelves themselves are an integral part of the building, rising out of the floor and blending into the architecture. Innovative technologies are seamlessly integrated throughout the building, enhancing accessibility and efficiency.
The museum is accessible by car
Park in the Ceremonial Court parking lot and take a shuttle to the library.
The station to get off for the Qatar National Library is the Msheireb or Al Bidda Interchange; continue on the Green line towards the QNL station.
