“2000-2008, New York-Doha: Museum of Islamic Arts Qatar”

From the first day I started working on the project of the Museum of Islamic Arts to be built in Doha, the capital of Qatar, at IM Pei in New York, as the lead designer with “a good command of Islamic architecture,” in the year 2000, till its inauguration marked by a Yo-Yo Ma performance eight years later, I will be sharing the whole process of establishing a museum as a building and an institution, from its conception to its construction.

Acting as the director of Aslıhan Demirtaş Architecture, Design and Research Studio, and KHORA, co-founded with Ali Cindoruk, the practice of Demirtaş crosses the boundaries of disciplines in the form of buildings, landscapes, installation projects, exhibitions and research.

Demirtaş received her master’s degree from the Department of Architecture at MIT, and completed her bachelor’s degree at the Department of Architecture at Middle East Technical University.

Demirtaş is an active member of the Initiative for the Protection of the Historical Yedikule Gardens.
