The Fire Station

Road to the firestation, Doha, Qatar

The Fire Station (www.firestation.org.qa) is really the rebirth of the old firstation in Doha into an artist residence with a gallery. The Garage gallery, originally home to all the firetrucks of Qatar, just opened its first exhibition and it is never too late to pay a visit.

The rest of the residence is still under construction, but the general layout and style of the site promises another blockbuster in the making. The old building is built in a mix of art-deco style and the new buildings are a modern form of Bauhaus.

I found the work in progress as interesting as an installation in itself, a splash of color in the midst of a monochrome pallette.

Some curvaceous furniture rounds off the show for now. Waiting with bated breath for the first round of residencies to end.
