bangkok based aesthetics architects go group have designed the minister
of municipal affairs & agriculture (MMAA) new office building in doha qatar,
also known as the cactus project.

the building’s design draws its inspiration from the ability of cacti thriving
in a desert. the energy efficient structure features sunshade panels that open
and close according to the sun’s intensity, as well as a botanic dome adding
to its green rating.

the high-rise building follows the innovative approach to sustainable
architecture
that the firm is
recognized for.
