Kuwait Cupola

Standing tall at 187 metres (614 ft) high - this Cupola is the pride of every Kuwaiti.

The Kuwait Towers were designed by Danish architect Malene Bjørn as part of a water distribution project run by the Swedish engineering company VBB (renamed Sweco in 1997).

Chief architect of the company Sune Lindström erected five groups of his typical "mushroom" water towers, the Kuwait Water Towers, but the Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed, wanted a more attractive design for the sixth site.

Out of ten different designs, three were presented to the Amir, who chose the design built which is called as the The Kuwait Towers
