South Korean Hyundai Engineering & Construction has secured a $434m contract from the Qatar Museums Authority (QMA) to build the National Museum on a 46,000m² site in Doha.

QMA has selected architect Jean Nouvel to design the new national museum and the construction work is expected to take 33 months.

The building, which will be constructed from dozens of interlocking disk-like forms, will provide permanent and temporary gallery space, an auditorium, TV studio, cafes, restaurants and a museum shop.

The building will have thermal buffer zones within the disk cavities, reducing the cooling loads of the building.

The museum will be surrounded by a 1.2-million-square-foot landscaped park reflecting the Qatari desert landscape.
