- We go to coffee shops on a daily sometimes, they exist all around the world. Something about coffee shops’ atmosphere is conductive to conversations and creativity. People accomplish goals in a coffee shop, it is an ideal meeting place and it augments friendships and strengthens sociability. I looked back through the time to see where coffee shops started and how much the idea of a coffee shop has changed regarding to latest generations. Visiting coffee shops is important because it is a lifestyle and some people tend to look at it as a sign of fashion. Moreover, it is a way to explore different cultures and it became a part of social contact. Most importantly, it plays such a large role in the community of Qatar’s social living.
- My intent is to explore people’s behaviour on coffee shops through observations, photographic/visual documentation, survey and interviews (which explore the phenomenon from its many sides).
