7 by Richard Serra

Sculpture in Doha

This sculpture by Richard Serra is the first of two installations from the artist to be commissioned by Qatar Museums Authority. Unveiled in 2011, the 24m-tall artwork stands proudly at the end of the park, looking out to the Gulf and the bright lights of the Doha skyline beyond. Made up of seven steel plates, this creation pays homage to its location, as the number seven has special spiritual significance in Qatari and Islamic culture.
