The State of You

Qatar's entry will present a hybrid between the old and the new, through the use of materials and cultural rituals. The installation will question how materials play a role in change, in interfering with traditions, and in becoming part of traditions by directly involving the visitor.

Evoking a sense of nostalgia, the design will create zones of isolation and question the ideals of "home" and how a city can change. How much change can a familiar place take to still remain home? Can we make somewhere familiar again?
