Qatar National Convention Centre

Doha, Qatar, 2010

International Congress Centre

With 40,000 m² of exhibition space, the newly opened Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) in Doha is the largest Congress centre in the Middle East. The building complex located in the capital of Qatar was designed by the renowned Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, and its striking form impresses the viewer with an enormous construction shaped like tree trunks and monumentally uprising branches that take on a statically vital supportive function. This spectacular architecture made of steel, wood, marble and glass already received the “Leadership in Energy and Environment Design” award by the U.S Green Building Council, since it communicates closeness to nature in a futuristic formal language in combination with a great number of groundbreaking energy concepts pointing the way into the future. The building features an auditorium for an audience of 2,500, a large conference hall for up to 4,000 participants as well as exhibition space in several halls and numerous smaller presentation and meeting rooms. The QNCC is equipped with 11,000 row-linking stacking chairs of the alite series, which a dedicated Brunner development team of 12 adapted to the specific QNCC requirements. Among other things, the height of the back support was reduced. Moreover, the stacking chair received a completely upholstered and detachable back and an exclusively designed fabric upholstery. A special distancing element for the alite row-linking system creates extra room for those seated, thus providing the distance deemed appropriate in this cultural environment. The comfortable chair is made of anodized aluminium, making it particularly lightweight and easy to handle – ideal for the requirements of the QNCC. The furnishing of the Congress centre was complemented by 2,058 sleight tables, some of them special editions featuring larger table surfaces.
