Architectural competition held to design new Qatar courthouse

Over the past several months, Qatar’s government has been actively seeking to replace its lower criminal courthouse on C-Ring Road with a new, modern structure that would be located at the northern edge of Doha.

This week, the country’s Private Engineering Office (PEO) – a government agency that oversees high-profile development projects in Qatar – revealed the winners of a design competition in which several firms proposed courthouse plans, architects said.

Officials are currently eying a 26,000 square meter plot of land in Jelaiah, near Qatar University and the West Bay Lagoon, for the new facility. If the project moves ahead, it is believed it would replace the current structure in Al Sadd, near La Cigale Hotel.

Spain and Kuwait-based AGi Architects placed second in the design competition with its proposal for a “floating” building.
