Al Jazeera HQ Doha
Vienna-based Veech X Veech expands Al Jazeera’s headquarters in Doha,
Qatar, by creating a landmark building and two broadcast media environments.
Veech X Veech has recently been honored with this year’s Set of the Year
Award at the NAB in Las Vegas, conferred by NewcastStudio, the most
important trade platform for the broadcasting industry.
Al Jazeera became one of the industry’s most influential multichannel networks worldwide, reaching more than 310 million viewers in over 100 countries. The network was just awarded Broadcaster of the Year at the prestigious New York Festivals World’s Best TV & Films awards. The Doha HQ is the second large-scale collaboration with Veech X Veech.
Following the launch of the broadcast facilities VXV designed for Al Jazeera Media Network in London’s landmark ‘Shard’ building, VXV were commissioned to design new facilities at the network’s headquarters in Doha. The new Network Studio building and Arabic Newsroom studio were built to commemorate the network’s 20-year anniversary in November 2016.
SET OF THE YEAR AWARD
The Al Jazeera Studio 14 in Doha by Veech X Veech won this year’s Set of the Year Award in the “International” category. The Set of the Year Awards, conferred by NewcastStudio, the most important trade platform for the broadcasting industry, honor the best scenic designs in broadcast television.
Stuart A. Veech, Creative Director of Veech X Veech, commented: „It is a great honor to receive the prestigious NewscastStudio award for one of the most challenging projects in our more than 20-year company history, creating both the bespoke architectural building, as well as, the broadcast media and interior landscape. The Al Jazeera Network Studio in Doha reflects VXV´s core expertize in defining new milestones for synergetic relationships between architecture and integrated media environments.”
