Kuwait cultural centre wins top award

, August 20, 2017

Kuwait’s Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmed Cultural Centre (JACC) has been selected for the Award of Merit of ENR’s Global Best Projects Awards.

The complex will be honoured at a gala ceremony on October 23, at the Sheraton hotel, Times Square, New York.

Since its grand opening in November 2016, the complex has showcased performing arts, local performances and international acts. The facility is the centrepiece of a world-class theatre quarter set in spacious parkland.

Complex geometric shapes, inspired by Islamic architecture, form the richly textured outer skin of the four buildings that make up JACC. Luxurious world-class buildings below the outer skin exude character and a heightened sense of expectation, said a statement from SSH, which was appointed as lead architecture and engineering designer on the complex.

The wonders continue inside each building, as visitors explore the beautifully designed interiors. The key buildings that form the JACC complex are the Theatre Centre, Music Centre, Conference Centre and National Library for Historical Documents, all set within the National Park for Kuwait.

The ENR (Engineering News Record) Global Best Projects Awards focus on the challenges, risks and rewards of designing and constructing in other countries.  –TradeArabia News Service
