About This Project
Location

Kuwait City, Kuwait
 
The Kuwait New Town aims to establish innovative foundations for a large urban expansion zone to accommodate a new Central Business District, residential neighbourhoods, institutional parks and recreation spaces. Configured around an active waterfront basin and corniche, the city expands outward along a network of open space greenway fingers. As the primary structural element, these fingers fuse the urban and natural landscapes, in turn helping to preserve the sensitive coastal ecosystem. The central waterfront is configured to support a vibrant mix of resort and sporting activity zones, and looks out onto a landmark, eco-dome island.
