Ibrahim Al Jaidah, Group CEO of Arab Engineering Bureau, launched his first book, ‘Qatari Style’, at the Msheireb Museums this week.
The book is a compilation of various interior spaces showcasing the warmth of Middle Eastern hospitality, and which resonates the sound of local culture. Ibrahim Al Jaidah addressed the audience during the launch and talked about the inspiration behind his book.
This is the first-ever book that provides insights into unique Qatari places. Qatar is a small peninsula in the Arabian Gulf, but it is also a crossroad to many trading and migration routes, which has resulted in the development of a distinctive local style.’
Rich in colour and detail, Qatari Style is rarely minimal and noteworthy for its depiction and fusion of various influences. The author said he is inspired by his national identity that is constantly recalling the past to honour its modern development.
Al Jaidah has won numerous awards and has been nominated three times for the Agha Khan Award.
