the client sought a new headquarter for the “kuwait foundation for advancement of science“ as well as a conference center – both complexes situated in striking locations along the city’s coastline.
querkrafts proposal addresses kuwait’s climatic challenges through a contemporary interpretation of its architectural traditions. an internal world with a unique thermal condition is created. a “hanging forest“ marks the atmospheric heart in the building’s core. Additionally, the organic facade minimizes direct sunlight while simultaneously maximizing views of the coast.
