Public Building of the Year

Public Building.JPG

The cultural centre designed by SSH is a celebration of the scientific and cultural achievements of mankind, and the scale, shapes and shades of the buildings are designed to convey a sense of wonder and awe.

The building will contain an array of permanent and temporary world class exhibits and artworks. 

Kuwaiti architecture is represented by the main ‘street’ which is not a straight line and echoes the traditional ‘Ferej’. This creates exciting spaces, Islamic patterns, corners and walkways, mirroring the experience of walking down a traditional, busy Kuwaiti street.

Walking through the cultural district beneath the canopy of the street will be a journey full of surprises, with stunning views deep into the heart of the museums where visitors will see framed vistas of priceless exhibits.

Judges’ comments include:

  • Celebrating the scientific and cultural achievements of mankind
  • Conveying a  sense of wonder and awe
  • Displaying world class exhibits and priceless artworks 
  • A cultural district beneath the canopy of the street
