The Exhibition Hall by Rem Koolhaas

Posted by Mark

Last year it was announced that the legendary architecture firm OMA would be designing a department store at 360 Mall and a few days back the design was finally revealed. Judging by the 360 Mall floor plan they have on the website it looks like the department store will be built as an extension to the current building and not a separate structure like I had previously thought. There’s a bunch of pictures as well as more information on the OMA website which you can check out [Here]

Kuwaiti graphic designer Fahad AlHunaif who’s based in New York struck gold a few days ago when one of his cap designs was worn by the British fashion model Cara Delevingne. She was backstage at the Jeremy Scott Runway Show when fashion photographer Terry Richardson snapped some pictures of her wearing the cap. Sadly I have no idea where you can get one from. You can check out the pictures taken by Terry Richardson [Here]

If you want to check out some of Fahad’s work you can do so on his tumblr [Here] or you can follow him on [Instagram]

Q8Car Redesigns

Posted by Mark

I’d say it’s just slightly better than their previous version. The colors are much more subtle but I think all the graphics and icons are a bit too big and bulky. You can check it out yourself [Here]

Pneumatic_Grove by StudioToggle

Posted by Mark

StudioToggle is a design studio for Kuwaiti architect Hend Almatrouk and Gijo Paul George. They’re the same team behind the coolest movie theater design I’ve ever seen which I posted about last year.

The same team have now created a temporary pavilion called Pneumatic_Grove, which they’ve installed infront of the National Library of Kuwait facing the Gulf Road. It is part of the Housing Sessions conference which started a few days back at the National Library. The pavilion is an urban intervention which comments about the inaccessible landscapes of Kuwait. The official opening for the pavilion was two days back but it will be running until tomorrow the 8th of November. If you’re also interested, they’re having panel discussion about the pavilion today at 4PM as well.

The Avenues launch new ugly logo

Posted by Mark

Their old logo (above) was not that great but their new one (below) is just horrible. They should have just hired the agency that did the 360 Mall branding.

Getting close to the opening of The Avenues new districts and our plans for future expansion of The Avenues we created a new iconic logo with a distinct personality that conveys a more abstract thought of simplicity and boldness. It’s an interactive logo with maximum flexibility for messaging.

Iconic? Don’t think so.
