Carnegie Mellon Architecture Professors Create Web-based Application To Illustrate Doha's Expansion
For the past 60 years, architects from around the world have designed unique, contemporary buildings that reflect the local climate, culture and growth of Doha, Qatar. Today, their architectural feats can be explored publicly via a free Web-based application called 4dDoha: Buildings.
Funded by Qatar Foundation and created by Carnegie Mellon University School of Architecture faculty members Kelly Hutzell and Rami el Samahy and their research team, 4dDoha: Buildings is part of an ongoing research project mapping the urban growth and transformation of Doha. Research team members are School of Architecture alumni Adam Himes (A'11), Spencer Gregson (A'10), and Kristina Ricco (A'09). The application they developed is one facet of a larger project called 4dDoha that examines Doha in three-dimensional space as well as time.
