The Crude Rise, A Qatari journey


An interactive contraption that demonstrates Qatar’s evolution over the generations, from oil towards numerous and creative alternative resources.

The contraption expresses the Qatari community’s pledge and commitment towards a greater future and displays a direct and personal responsibility that every citizen has towards their country.

This contraption allows the user to interact with the conceptual structure of a building, playing their role in society by taking ownership of the oil pump and feeding conceptual growth bricks as a mean of patriotic contribution to Qatar’s industry and economy.

Within the interaction of the concrete bricks flowing through the liquids, a performance is displayed, showcasing the utilization of oil as a primary resource of growth, heading towards alternative more green and long-lasting resources such as solar power, education and unlocking Qatar’s human potential.
