Spanish-Kuwaiti firm AGi architects has been awarded second prize in a competition to design a new courthouse in ’s capital, Doha. The restricted competition, organized by the Government of Qatar, challenged 30 participants, of which four were shortlisted to compete in the final round. 

AGi’s proposal was based off of two grids – the immediate site’s and the larger city – resulting in a “floating,” canopy-like structure that metaphorical “protects” its inhabitants. View the complete proposal, after the break.

AGi Architects, in collaboration with Bonyan Design, recently won the competition to build the General Department of the Information System in . Their design is based on three principles: representativeness, security and functionality, turning the complex – with a total gross area of 135,482 sqm – into a strong civil icon representing ’s Ministry of Interior Affairs. The building design aims for the clear transmission of a conceptual duality it derives from: technology, innovation and transparency on the one hand versus strength, stability and security, which are inherent to the Ministry of Interior Affairs.

The design for the ‘Wafra Living’ complex by AGi Architects won the first prize in the future project/residential category in the WAF 2011 competition. The proposal consists of a high rise building set back from the street and an L-shaped building defining the street edge, conceived to maximize privacy within the community, whilst providing ample natural light and usable indoor and outdoor common spaces. Cuts have been made in the front building in order to provide better views for the lower floor apartments in the back tower. More images and architects’ description after the break.
