Doha Tower, also known as Burj Doha, and previously named Burj Qatar and Doha High Rise Office Building, is a high-rise tower in West Bay, Doha, Qatar. On October 18, 2012, the building received the CTBUH Skyscraper Award for the Best Tall Building Worldwide from the CTBUH. The $125-million office building, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, has a height of 238 meters (781 ft), with 46 stories.
In 2004 the project was first named the Doha High Rise Office Building and after completion of construction in 2012 was branded Burj Doha by the owner, H. E. Sheikh Saud bin Muhammed Al Thani. The public has noted the building's "phallic form", suggestive of what Nouvel calls a "fully assumed virility." After the people called it informally the Burj Qatar, the Government of Qatar renamed it officially the Doha Tower.
The tower establishes a clear and direct connection with local culture and practice by using the screen on the facade that responds to the weather in an appropriate manner. The design provides a flexible, efficient and interesting workplace for office occupants and considers the needs of the owner. Finally, the building makes an iconic declaration and stands as a symbol on the Doha skyline, both day and night through the texture of its facade and its integrated architectural lighting. Burj Doha was recognized in the 2012 Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Award, winning both the Best Tall Building Middle East & Africa and the Best Tall Building Worldwide.
