The Museum of Islamic Art Park is a multi-phased redevelopment of the 24 hectare park surrounding the Museum of Islamic Art designed by I.M. Pei. The first phase of the park is to house restaurants, kiosks and park amenities on the 5 hectare Peninsula anchored by a site specific 24m tall sculpture by Richard Serra, one of the world’s foremost contemporary artists today. Due to be inaugurated in December of 2011, the Phase 1 development opening will commemorate Doha as the 2011 Cultural Capital of the Middle East.
