Inspired by the movement and line of a galloping thoroughbred, architect Dominique Perrault designed a viewing platform, a 160m long glass building, playing with transparency and perspective.

Autumn hues

The colour of the sloping building is suggestive of autumn hues, the season in which one of the most prestigious horse shows is held, the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
