Doha’s Msheireb Will Be World’s Largest LEED Certified Community
Msheireb is a planned complex in downtown Doha of over 100 buildings, most of which will earn LEED Gold certification after the project’s completion. As Qatar scrambles to prepare for its hosting of the 2022 World Cup, Doha has become an emerging sustainability laboratory showcasing the latest in solar energy technology and green building design. Msheireb, a 31 hectare complex that will transform Doha, will be a showcase of the latest and greatest green design elements while incorporating traditional Arabian architecture. I visited Msheireb in February and was impressed with the company’s commitment and dedication to green building in Qatar. And so this amazing project, which will open its first phase later this year, is showcased in my latest Middle East architecture gallery on Inhabitat.
