Qatar National Library

The Qatar National Library was built to represent knowledge and imagination. Qatar defines itself as a vibrant reading and research culture, rooted in history, and the state-of-the-art structure—designed by famed architect Rem Koolhaas—is a modern landmark. The captivating identity system is designed to stir both place and thought: Bold lines intersect to create a window-like frame of clarity while colorful orbs evolve throughout, expressing the transformative nature of information combined with creative power. Set to open in 2015, this awe-inspiring library is certain to earn international renown.


"Duffy did a great job creating a very expressive identity that matched our vision for the library."
