The pavilion, located at Magazzino Del Sale N.5, explores ideas of decolonization and decarbonization by rethinking means of transportation and accessibility. The project looks at Kuwait at a national scale with a focused study on Kuwait City as a prototypical condition. The exhibition features various studies that explore transitional spaces in the city that range in scope and scale. In our collective philosophy, history is treated as a spiral rather than a linear timeline; looking for moments of precedent that can inform future developments.
