Anti-Doping Laboratory in Doha
- Sports City Street, Doha, Qatar
- Alberto de Pineda, Raúl García, Paula Pestana, Antonio Mota, José Olagüe, Daniel Linares
The laboratory is located in the sports area of Doha, an enclave in continuous growth in the city. The building is a unique glass shape roofed by a huge perforated plane extending over the patio and supported by a forest of fine columns, creating a direct visual relationship between the internal activities and the exterior.
The patio with the pool creates a space with domestic features, suited to the extreme climate of this region. A landscaped plaza is created outside to emphasise the building's characteristics and connect it directly to the surroundings.
