Yeang lands Olympic HQ design :

Architect Ken Yeang has been appointed to design the headquarters for the Olympic Council of Asia, which is based in Kuwait City.

The 65,000 m2 building will become the main home of the Olympics in Asia. It will cost at least £70m and will include a 35-storey tower containing office space and a hotel. The complex will also have two swimming pools – one for men and one for women, as mixed bathing is not allowed in Kuwait.

Commenting on the Kuwait scheme, Yeang said: “The Olympic building will be designed with sustainability in mind. It’ll be a green building.”
