Despite what we believe in, we can all agree that mosques are an open canvas for phenomenal architecture and this mosque exceeds that. Created by Abu Dhabi based architecture company called BEAD Architects & Engineers, this mosque called “Beach Mosque” defies everything we are used to in regular mosques. Mosques don’t have requirements on how to be built but architects just recreate the same design over and over but not with this design. The overall look of ...

I’m pretty sure we all have seen this cafe in Kuwait at 360 mall due to its distinctive location and pretty design. What I did not know is that this design was created by the very talented Jassim Al-Shehab, whereas I initially thought with such a franchise the design kind of came with it. Anyway, I’ve been very fond of the design of this place even though it is surrounded by two other cafes since ...

This a beautiful Conference center located in China which I quickly fell in love with. It might not look as so, but the building was designed to appear like a shell to accompany the sea next to it. The overall design looks amazing, it is sure that it was very challenging creating such mind bending platforms and structures. Aside from the visual design, the building uses the sea and thermal energy to cool the place, so ...

This is called Amphibious 1000, and I know it is such a weird name but the resort looks great. The design is clever as the rooms are separately placed above water looking ...

This gorgeous structure is known as a sustainable waterscraper resort . It was designed by Orlando De Urrutia Architecture as a self sustaining building inspired by (you guessed it), “a drop of water falling from the heights”. The structure looks like something out of this world, to say that its beautiful would be a shameful understatement. But looks isn’t all that the building as to offer. It’s designed to be a self sustaining building, and this is ...

Part of this ongoing project is the creation of a better college for the College of Education, and I must say this looks outstanding.

If you are located in Kuwait then you’re already familiar on how Kuwait is such a little country and colleges of Kuwait university are scattered all over. I don’t know why would anyone want a university and all of its colleges to be in one place knowing ...

The first thing that came to mind when I saw these images was how super futuristic it looked, almost like it was the nightclub of 3000, hence the name Galactic. So this amazing design was done by Brazilian architect Fred Mafra for the local night club Josefine/Roxy. Its no secret that Brazil is one of the party capitals of he world so it would make sense for them to have some of the best night clubs ...
