Image-making is a prevalent practice of architects and designers worldwide in an attempt to incorporate meaning into place. Such practice generally results in expressions that either reect the regional context or mirror the wider global culture. This chapter aims to explore image-making practices in the city of Doha, a city that has experienced the rapid urban transformations associated with building large scale work and learning environments, mixed-use developments, and cultural and sport facilities. This chapter unveils major approaches and understandings relevant to the contemporary architecture of Doha in four sections and an outlook. The rst section presents an overview of contemporary architecture by utilising the metaphors of ‘drama’ and ‘theatre’ to reect on the city’s contextual geo-cultural politics; this is followed by a discussion of several scenes of major architectural interventions that represent the theatrical aspects of the current architectural stage in Doha.
