The coolest cinema in the world is designed by a Kuwaiti

Post by Mark

The rendering above is of the new design for the Pushkinsky cinema in Moscow. It was designed by architect Hend Almatrouk and Gijo Paul George. I’ve never seen anything that looks like it and I also hadn’t heard of Hend before. I was just checking out her blog and she’s got a lot of crazy stuff. Here are some related links:

Thanks Mohammad

Update: Hend sent me an email saying that she has a design studio which she started with her partner Gijo Paul George called “Studio_Toggle”. They’ve got better quality shots on their studio’s website so check it out [Here]

    Why don’t Kuwaitis ever design cool buildings in their own country?

    • Shalth says:

      Because they get no respect in their country! and they bring some designers from foreign countries to spend more money!

    • Kojak says:

      This type cost money and you know your friends dude! $$$$$$

    • Ms. Neutral says:

      So true Mariam – it seems Kuwaitis don’t want their country to progress – they have soooo many investments outside, which is a good thing – but it does make me wonder what they really think!

    • Alanood says:

      We have tons of Kuwaiti talented people, but no one of those who are in charge give them the right chance to show their talents.

      This is our problem for ages.

      Because here in Kuwait if someone wants to build a new project they want to show off with “DESIGNED BY ITALIAN ARCHITECT”

    I’ll be saddened if they replace the Pushkinski theatre with this new-age sci-fi star wars looking spaceship.

    It just doesn’t fit the vintage Tretyakovskay street with pre WW2 architecture all around.
