  Al Qasr Hotel
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The resort of Madinat Jumeirah has two boutique hotels (Al Qasr and Mina A'Salam) and a courtyard of summer houses called Dar Al Masyaf.
The building of Al Qasr, which literally translates to ?the Palace?, reminds a windcatcher. It is a traditional Persian and Arabic architectural device used for many centuries to create natural ventilation in buildings. It is not known who first invented the windcatcher. Windcatchers come in various designs, such as the uni-directional, bi-directional, and multi-directional.
