- Qatar Urban Planning & Development Authority (UPDA)
- Design Competition
KANNFINCH in collaboration with other Sydney based design consultants and engineers developed this innovative scheme.
The design brief promoted the redesign of the 25km2 Doha Corniche district to provide a pedestrian-based community in an area currently dominated by cars. Our scheme divides the Corniche into five key sites offering different opportunities and design outcomes. A new light rail line with adjacent walking canopy is integrated into the entire ring of waterfront land, encouraging pedestrian activity, and offering an alternative to cars. One of the major design challenges, the sustainability of green landscaped areas, was achieved by water re-use strategies.
Our proposal was shortlisted by the UPDA as one of three designs formally presented to the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.
