Kuwait National Assembly Refurbishment
Kuwait City, Kuwait
The design takes as an inspiration the layout of a typical Arabian city, which is divided by a central axis spine along the main entrance. The main architectural element is the huge canopy over the VIP entrance made to resemble great sails billowing in the desert and also to recall tent structures of desert nomads. The office blocks are grouped around the main axis, and each block is arranged around a open court that takes as an inspiration the open courtyard houses of the area.
