AGi to design Kuwait government complex

AGi architects, in collaboration with Bonyan Design, has won a competition to design the General Department of the Information System in Kuwait.

The 135,482m2 complex is conceived as a strong civil icon representing Kuwait’s Ministry of Interior Affairs.

According to the architects the design is based on three principles: representativeness, security and functionality.

The aesthetics are shaped by the superposition of two contrasting layers: a large stone plinth at the lower level, and lighter glass structures on the upper floors.

Ground floor level will contain a plaza conceived as an inner urban space acting as the core of flows and circulations and providing access to all four departments in the building.
