This was a competition commissioned by the Rulers of Qatar. This project entry was short-listed, as one among the two finalists. The project was subsequently awarded to Santiago Calatrava. Located in Doha, Doha Bay Crossing bridges are a set of three interconnected bridges spanning almost ten kilometers in the Doha Bay. The bridge will connect the city’s cultural district in the north to Hamad International Airport and the central business district in West Bay. The bridges, which are designed to accommodate as many as 2,000 vehicles an hour per lane, are also flanked by a series of subsea tunnels to manage and direct the flow of traffic across the bay.
