A Gulf Abridged
Cerberus showcased at the exhibition and symposium curated by Hamed Bukhamseen and Ali Karimi
Al Shaheed Park, Kuwait City-Kuwait
In 2016, Kuwait participated in the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia with a pavilion titled Between East and West: A Gulf. The pavilion, commissioned by the National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL), looked beyond the shores of Kuwait and argued in favor of a master plan for a united Gulf. By presenting the untold history of the Gulf and proposing an alternate future with contributions from young architectural practices, the Kuwait pavilion shone a light on the 300 islands of the region and the possibilities they hold for an alternate future. On January 14, 2017, the NCCAL hosted an exhibition and a symposium with the goal of continuing the discussion which began in Venice.
