This morning we had a meeting with previous graduates about our 3 possible ideas –
– Qatar’s cuisine, focussing on the food/drink – Let people have a ‘taste’ of Qatar’s culture through our kiosk, sampling their cuisine
– Different cultures coming together to make up Qatar – how we could represent Qatar becoming a cultural meeting point
– Past, Present, Future – creating an experiential kiosk where people can learn about Qatar’s rapid transition from the past til now, and where it aims to be in the future.
The graduates told us to look at the World Expo 2010 and how Qatar conveyed themselves through designing their own pavillion. So we found this useful video….
“They have been ushered into the modern era, but have not forgotten their roots”
We thought this was a very good & appropriate stimulus quote to help us progress!
