NMoQ unveils ‘Peace Bench’

The National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) has unveiled a special gift from the Nobel Peace Center in collaboration with the Norwegian firm Hydro. The gift is a sculptured ‘Peace Bench’, which is an internationally-recognised symbol of conversation, diplomacy and dialogue, and is now placed in Baraha at NMoQ. The NMoQ was selected on the basis of being a high-visibility area by the Nobel Peace Center, shedding light on the museum’s aim of bringing communities together to experience Qatar’s past and present. The 6.5-metre long bench is made of aluminium supplied by Hydro, which is a part-owner of the Qatalum aluminium company. Norwegian firms Snohetta and Vestre, respectively, designed and constructed the NMoQ installation. (TNN)
