Desert Rhythms

There’s a sameness to color here in Doha. Buildings are made in the colors of dust, and then become covered in dust. The sandy landscape dictates and overrules aesthetic choices.

But within this limited palette, rhythmic repetition of shapes creates a pulse.

The sparse lines and muted color evoke calm, as on my rooftop after a rainstorm.
