AGi Architects, in collaboration with Bonyan Design, recently won the competition to build the General Department of the Information System in Kuwait. 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 Kuwait’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. More images and architects' description after the break.
