Tim Makower, Architect and Partner of Allies and Morrison Architects, lectured on 'The Seven Steps - A Living Framework' at Carnegie Mellon Qatar on Thursday, March 18. The lecture focused on the new architectural language for Dohaland, a subsidiary of the Qatar Foundation, described in the context of their pilot/flagship project 'Musheireb: Heart of Doha.' Musheireb is a new 35-hectare mixed-use neighborhood that aims to regenerate the historic center of Doha, Qatar. Allies and Morrison, with AECOM and ARUP, are the master planners for the project. Buildings are being designed by Allies and Morrison, David Adjaye, Mossesian and Partners, Dar Al Omran, and John McAslam.
