The Kuwait Stock Exchange by John S. Bonnington in 1984. The site for the new Kuwait Stock Exchange was chosen near the sea, in the central business district of Kuwait City. Just opposite the Grand State Mosque, it is situated at the intersection of two major roads. The site is restricted and opens only onto two streets.


The main element of the building is the Market Hall, and this occupies the central area of the site. It is a three-storey, column-free space, entered directly via the main entrance at the intersection of the adjacent streets. The hall is surrounded on the ground, first, and second floors by galleries of glass fronted brokers’ rooms, and a public concourse. The Market Hall is covered by a roof terrace with 48 pyramidal glass domes for the lighting of the hall. This same terrace is set out as a water garden court which is bounded at the north and east by an L-shaped, glazed block of offices which overlooks the garden. The upper portion, at roof level, is completed by two bridge floors parallel to the streets. These floors support a roof structure which protects the inner core from excessive solar gain. The shading roof is a light metallic ‘eggcrate’ structure. Furthermore, the architectural expression of the sculptural cubic block is emphasized by the very restricted choice of external materials, largely polished granite and glass.


It is a reinforced concrete building with steel lattice beams and a RC structure for bridge accomodation,. It is clad in red granite and bronze heat reflecting-glass in bronze frames.

The Sharq Administration Center in Jubayl, Saudi Arabia by Arc Design Consultants in 1984. The project involved the design of an administrative and recreational center for a petrochemical company. The one- to three-storey buildings are square or rectangular in plan with rectangular or arched openings. Roofs are either flat or composed of a series of barrel vaults. All exterior spaces are furnished with fountains and other decorative elements.

Of course, the ultimate moment of being Female in Public comes when a woman, deep in thought, is told by a strange man to SMILE. (And this happens only to women.) Gentlemen, let’s get this straight. There is no part of my body that belongs to you, not even my facial expression.

— From a devastating essay from Laura Lippman, author, about what it’s like to be a woman in public.  (via alec-scudder)

So, everyone else is still sleeping and the phone rings. Oh my… And that’s why I am the mother here and everyone else is my pouty children.

I am getting too old for this. LOL

I guess that’s what my mom meant by ‘see you on adulthood’. I am cleaning the mess right now. LOL
