Kuwait City, Kuwait Google Maps
We tried to design a cultural center building that
is supposed to be an iconic symbol of Kuwait,
with its gigantic ellipsoid form, functional brutalist
structure and methaporic meaning. As conceptional
idea; ellipsoid form of the main structure
refers to eggshell that protects vitality and life.
Ellipsoid structure covers and protects art and
culture metaphorically. Sphere formed huge space
including concert halls and movie theatres refer
to eggyolk that represent vitality, exhilaration.
At the same time egg is the nucleus of life that
starts a new presence. In our design ellipsoid form
refers to egg shape that has the methaporic meaning
“nucleus of new art, music and ideas” that
are carring and covering the genetics. With the
colors of Kuwait ambiance and emphasized different
parts of the complex; hexagonal main structure
red, transparent surface, green reflective glass,
base and plaza black marble, entrance ramp and
bridge white were defined to resemble the colors
of the flag.
