Qatar’s new Science and Technology Park (QSTP) is a key initiative in the region’s drive to diversify the economy, create highly skilled jobs and to establish a knowledge economy in the Middle East. It is integrated with the facilities of the Qatar Foundation. A distinctive 'Veil' roof, reflecting traditional Islamic architecture, is the iconic symbol of the campus. It provides shade, connects buildings, swells to accentuate the heart of the site, and provides protection to the central atrium/courtyards. The 'Incubator Centre' is the heart and community focus of the campus. The design is respectful of Qatari culture and designed for desert climate.
