Al-Watan Daily: "The Kuwait School presents eight point design manifesto"

, ,

Fellow blogger and director smArchitecture, Thomas Modeen, put forth the manifesto touched upon in his presentation at Pecha Kucha Night some weeks ago.  


"KUWAIT: The ''Kuwait School'', is an eight point design manifesto (first of its kind in the region) outlining some key nodes and the spirit in which Kuwait and perhaps even some of its neighbors could remodel their priorities and tackle various design related undertakings. This callـtoـaction was first announced at Kuwait''s inaugural Pecha Kucha Night, which took place at the Dar AlـAthar AlـIslamiyyah Cultural Center on March 11, 2009. Below is a summary of the manifesto''s eight interrelated points, unveiled in the images in both English and Arabic, that aim to establish a recognizable cultural identity for contemporary Kuwait, something that still, as it stands, remains largely undefined."
