"The Qatar Flour Mills Company has a distinguished name within the Gulf as a pioneer in food production," said Qatar Museums' chairperson Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani. "Now that it is re-locating to the new port, we are grateful to be given this building. In converting and reinventing it, we hope to feed the community with the latest cultural developments and artistic creations from around the world – as well as establishing a strong platform for the Arab world to present their work within Qatar’s international context."

It is hoped that the Art Mill will "conceived as a vibrant and multi-layered civic and cultural presence, a focus for the emerging campus of museums and cultural institutions at the eastern end of the Corniche." It's site, extending into the Doha Bay, will adjoin to a park around I.M. Pei's Museum of Islamic Art, nearby the Corniche and Jean Nouvel’s National Museum of Qatar (under construction)

A shortlist of five architects will be announced in 2016.

The competition was launched by Qatar Museums and is being organized by Malcolm Reading Consultants
