Ceremonial Court and the Ceremonial Green Spine

A stunning outdoor events space located at the heart of Education City.  

The Ceremonial Green Spine was the first line drawn on Qatar Foundation’s master plan for Education City in 1992. This line connects two celebration spaces: Qatar National Convention Centre, an indoor space, and the Ceremonial Court, which is outdoors. It also divides the higher education facilities of the entire campus from those that offer primary and secondary education.
