Building projects of all sizes are exciting.  I love how the many small details fit into fewer larger ideas to come together in creating a solution, whether it’s a dwelling, a road, a bridge, or even a whole city.  Al Hamra, both as a project and a building, is in a class of its own.  Even if one is not interested in architecture or skyscrapers, this building is different.  It will (already has) change the skyline Kuwait City for ever. The design is simple, beautiful and unique; and it brings a new level of creativity and sophistication to our city.  If that’s not enough, it also happens to be the tallest carved building, and one of tallest skyscrapers in the world.

On Saturday morning, have a good breakfast and a strong coffee; then imagine yourself in the top sphere of Kuwait Towers.  Think how much this country gives you – and vote for someone who cares as much as you do. We really need change this time round.  I’m not sure how much change we will get, but I remain hopeful.  My votes are for a man I trust (as much as one can a politician), a woman I believe has potential, and two new faces.

You can make a difference.  Make sure you do.
