GCC Conference Center
Kuwait City, Kuwait
The conceptual design was based upon Bedouin tents. Three large tensile structures containing a banqueting facility, majlis and conference rooms occupy the palace gardens and are interlinked with walkways. The tensile structures are stretched PVC-coated, polyester woven, mat fabric secured to light weight steel structures. Each tents has three layers incorporating the outer skin, insulation layer and inner skin, and then the interior lining finish.
