designs made to solve problems

jean-robert delb, the architect famous with "tour europe" building in paris, was appointed in 1969 to design the gulf bank in kuwait.

the same as there, concrete pre-moulded elements come together to compose the facade.

these units with a similar appearance to the accropodes (objects that resist the action of waves on breakwaters and coastal structures) are used to control the disturbing sunlight. 

the post-oil era designs have a high-level awareness of kuwait's environment which has long summers with a hot climate. that's the times when designs were made to solve a problem compared to the current designs that feature full-scale glass windows with maximum sun exposure.
