DESCRIPTION
 
Al Jazeera Media Network
Veech X Veech, Al Jazeera, Doha, Qatar, Mascha Veech-Kosmatschof, Stuart A. VeechAl 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.

Veech X Veech, Al Jazeera, Doha, Qatar, Mascha Veech-Kosmatschof, Stuart A. VeechFollowing 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.
Al Jazeera Network Studio Building
Veech X Veech, Al Jazeera, Doha, Qatar, Mascha Veech-Kosmatschof, Stuart A. VeechVXV’s new design was conceived as a landmark structure annexed to Al Jazeera’s pre-existing headquarters.

Veech X Veech, Al Jazeera, Doha, Qatar, Mascha Veech-Kosmatschof, Stuart A. VeechThe new development contains 1,650m2 of studio space and support areas, with 7,450m2 of landscaped public space to be realized in 2018. Shaded by a free-standing canopy cantilevering from a 36m lateral structural support, the open-plan design eliminates walls, partitions and columns to provide uninterrupted views through the studios and public areas.

Al Jazeera Network Studio
Veech X Veech, Al Jazeera, Doha, Qatar, Mascha Veech-Kosmatschof, Stuart A. VeechSituated at the core of the new building, the 400m2 studio features 360o panoramas throughout the studio and exterior walls. broadcast studio design goes far beyond conventional ‘black box’ sets, making the vistas seen through the glass façade part of the newsroom’s identity. Polarization filter panels balance the natural light, while integrated LED lighting, imaging technologies, immersive graphics and Augmented Reality add high-definition digital content to the broadcasts. The architecture is responsive, reconfiguring into a range of sets with distinct programme identities. VXV created interior features that reflect the curves and asymmetry of the calligraphy used in the network’s logo, which subtly reinforce the Al Jazeera brand.

Al Jazeera Arabic Newsroom
Veech X Veech, Al Jazeera, Doha, Qatar, Mascha Veech-Kosmatschof, Stuart A. VeechThis ground-breaking hybrid space comprises a broadcast studio and production workplace galleries that provide egress to other parts of the site. The 1,100m² studio contains three individual sets adjacent to open-plan areas with space for 100 workstations. The architecture contains 3D immersive graphics and responsive LED surfaces that reconfigure lighting levels and colour tones as new segments are broadcast. Other technologies capture contextual metadata collected during newsgathering and synchronise it with on-screen graphics and video clips integrated into the main 35m video wall installation.

Veech X Veech, Al Jazeera, Doha, Qatar, Mascha Veech-Kosmatschof, Stuart A. VeechThese projects provide a compelling new vision for how architecture, studio design, broadcast media and digital technologies can make production and distribution faster, responsive and more efficient.

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.”
