    My firm submitted a design competition entry. I had to hand deliver a portion of it.

    No pedestrians at all in Doha. The only people seen anywere were the immigrant workers. There are 300,000 Qatar citizens. There are are 1,000,000 ex-pat workers doing all this work as well as staffing hotels, restaurants, etc.
