Scandinavian Design



Kuwait is getting real tired of your shit guys.

The Kuwait National Assembly Building was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the same guy who designed the Sydney Opera House. To illustrate his idea to the Kuwaiti people, he used a row of empty beer bottles.

When the Kuwaiti people asked the Swedish architect Sune Lindström for a new tower, his original idea was to make it mushroom shaped, but he was asked to change the design, so Sune’s Danish wife Malene Bjørn made a new design which is now Kuwait’s most famous building.

The Towers were built before the National Assembly. I just thought it was funnier this way.
