KUWAIT, Kuwait Central Marketplace, Master Plan

The Kuwait Central Market has been in its present downtown location since the beginning of Historic Kuwait City. It is growing with no special planning and in a totally chaotic and random fashion. Way finding, safety, security and lack of compliance with the new zoning and building codes were major concerns. Our international team studied the site for several months and presented a number of viable scenarios.

Logistics , multi-layered transportation network, traditional interactive spaces and sustainable hot/arid zone were among the key issues addressed.
