The design and concept of Al Shaheed Park in Kuwait has been the center of the local media’s attention recently, it has created the biggest buzz since the completion on the Hamra Tower. The name of the park is Al Shaheed which means The Martyr in Arabic, this is what brought up the concept of creating a space to honor the war martyrs through national celebrations and festivals.

“Each of the building programs inserted in this Park reconversion must be read as a carefully staged plan of action with precise formal and social objectives. These are components of a comprehensive project of the Amiri Diwan to instigate the participation of national citizens in the city’s public space beyond the private owned shopping malls ‘gallerias’. Today, this larger conception informs the Emir Office’s practice and social policies.”
