INSPIRATION:
The design proposal for the General Department of Information System, GDIS, in Kuwait, developed by AGi architects in collaboration with Bonyan 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.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
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 that will occupying the building, on the other. This concept is driven in the building by two contrasting layers that are superimposed onto one another.
