The project is amazing. The modern style of the complex and the place where its situated will make it into a "starbucks cafe" of the business men. The environmental awareness, and the shading plan of the building is pure genious. However, I really hope they incorporate a lot of greenery somehow. That way the building will look nicer, and will give the incentives to future projects to incorporate the environmental factor in their projects.

wow.

that's a spectacular, albeit unorthodox, concept. Bernard Khoury, like Jean Nouvel, uses very interesting forms of line and shape to create his works, and i personally like the KIFC. the plot of land where it's proposed is currently nothing but sand and serves as a parking lot; it would be amazing if they constructed this on it. and it would also contribute to Kuwait City's renaissance as a cosmopolitan, forward-thinking capital city.

You can appreciate the building much, if you read the brief and see what the architect is trying to convay! "Its formal abstraction is complimented by the intricacy of the complex geometrical composition of its facades that evoke the rich cultural heriatte of Islamic Art"
