Our Government Architecture project for the General Department of Information Systems (GDIS), en Kuwait, aims for the clear transmission of a conceptual duality it derives from: there’s innovation and transparency versus strength, stability and security, which are inherent to the Ministry of Interior Affairs that will be occupying the building.
This governemnt architecture project by AGi Architects is shown on the exhibition “On Tour. Spanish Architecture in the Arab World “, organized by Casa Arabe and the Spanish Higher Council of Orders of Architects (CSCAE), which arrives at Beirut, its first stop in the Arab world, after visiting the Spanish cities of Madrid, Valencia and Murcia.
Thus, the exhibition that shows our project for the General Department of Information System (GDIS), in Kuwait, developed in collaboration with Bonyan Design, can be visited at the Architecture and Design School of the American Lebanese University in Beirut until 28 March.
It is planned that the exhibition “On Tour. Spanish Architecture in the Arab World” goes over other Arab countries such as Morocco, where it will arrive in April to visit six cities and will remain there until September, in collaboration with Instituto Cervantes.
Award winning government architecture
In 2013, our GDIS proposal won the first prize of the international architecture competition organized by the Ministries of Interior Affairs and Public Works in Kuwait for designing and building this project.
This government architecture project was 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.
