1. Doha: Richard Serra Sculpture, Mushroom Hills & Zekreet Fort
Ras Brouq – a peninsula located on the west coast of Qatar – bears the remains of prehistoric human occupation. The beautiful and iconic rock formations at Ras Brouq offer a glimpse of a prehistoric landscape. Internationally acclaimed artist Richard Serra adds the astonishing East-West/West-East sculpture to the desert landscape, taking art to the people. This breathtaking sculpture in the Brouq nature reserve spans over a kilometer and comprises four steel plates, each over fourteen meters in height. To guarantee perfect alignment, Serra examined the topography of the land and beautifully enhanced the vast, desolate space in the heart of the desert. The result is spectacular and although contemporary, timeless.
