Photographer's Note

Built at a cost of $15 billion, the state-of-the-art Hamad International Airport in Doha has officially opened and will replace the current Doha International as Qatar's only international airport. The new airport has taken nearly nine years to build. The sprawling 29,000 sq km facility is 1/3 the entire size of Doha itself and built almost entirely on reclaimed land.

The Al Mourjan Business Lounge required more than 20,000 sq ft of metal cladding. The cladding, based on Product Line EXYD-M, reflects a fragmented image of the surroundings; shapes, outlines and colors are scattered, giving the effect of rippled water.

I took this picture at the base of the spiral staircase leading to the second level of Al Mourjan Business Lounge. A 15m x 7m infinity pool water lit by a stunning four-tiered chandelier provides an ambience of peace & serenity. The view of waves is relaxing, clears off the flow of thoughts. Perhaps it is not only an intersection with nature, but also with the core of the observer
