Kuwait Towers

For more than 35 years, Kuwait Towers have stood as the undisputed national symbol of Kuwait. Today, the Towers have become an integral element of the Kuwait City skyline, occupying a focal position on the Sea Front along the Arabian Gulf Road. Known to residents fondly as “Al Abraj” (simply the Towers), they are a must-visit destination for residents and tourists alike. The Nation’s Premier Touristic Destination Kuwait Towers are a unique landmark, in that they serve a number of different purposes. The two larger towers – known as the Main and Middle Towers respectively – still function as water reservoirs. Meanwhile, the smallest of the towers – known as the Minor Tower – illuminates the other two and supplies electricity to them and other areas of Kuwait. The Main Tower also serves as the site’s main public attraction. Its Main Sphere offers a number of quality dining experiences, whilst its Viewing Sphere provides an incomparable panoramic view of Kuwait City and the Arabian Gulf.

 

 

The Making of an Icon The Kuwait Towers were not originally intended as a touristic destination. At the beginning, the Towers were simply meant to be the sixth site for the nation-wide network of water towers that was being constructed around Kuwait. However, given their prominent location along the country’s coastline, His Highness the Amir, Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah, had a different vision for these towers. Danish architect Malene Bjørn was commissioned to produce an exclusive, one-of-a-kind design that would marry functionality with architectural excellence. Unlike the remainder of Kuwait’s water towers, this trio of towers was constructed in a unique conical shape, with spheres completing their distinctive look, A staggering 55,000 enameled steel discs were used to cover the three iconic spheres, creating a dazzling, mosaic-like spiral pattern in eight shades of blue, green and gray. The striking design melded together contemporary architectural concepts, western technology, and traditional Islamic patterns to create this architectural work of art, which now stands as a symbol of Kuwait’s cultural heritage and its modern prosperity.
