kuwaitpavilion كلف تصميم ثانوية الشويخ في عام ١٩٥١ ، وفتحت فصولها للطلبة في عام ١٩٥٣ ، وهي مدرسة داخلية للبنين وكلية صناعية أيضاً
تميزت ثانوية الشويخ بحجمها الضخم وتجهيزاتها الحديثة ، فكانت مساحتها تقارب ٢.٥ مليون متر مربع وتحتوي على إستاد رياضي ومسرح لألف شخص و مستشفى وحمام سباحة وثمانة مساكن داخلية وسكن للمدرسين وحديقة وغيرها من المرافق
ولكن في عام ١٩٧٢ تحولت الثانوية الى جزء من جامعة الكويت وتم انشاء كلية الحقوق فيها (الصورة من أرشيف شركة نفط الكويت)

Commissioned in 1951, Shuwaikh Secondary School was a boarding school for boys and a technical college that opened its doors to students in 1953.
The school was celebrated for its immense scale and modern facilities at the time. It amounted to almost 2.5 million square metres and contained a stadium, a theatre for 1000 people, a hospital, a park, a swimming pool, eight dormitories, and homes for teachers, as well as other amenities.
However in 1972, the school's campus was selected to house Kuwait University's College of Law. (Image from KOC Archives)

kuwaitpavilion صمم بنك الكويت المركزي من قبل المعماري الدنماركي الشهير آرني جاكوبسين ، واكتمل المبنى الحديث للبنك في عام ١٩٧٦
ولكن تم تغيير المبنى الأصلي في عام ١٩٨٥ ، ليشبه هيئته الآن
للمزيد من المعلومات حول تغيرات بنك الكويت المركزي ، الرجاء قراءة "مناجاة البيرقراطية" لدانة الجودر في إصدار المعرض (الصورة من أرشيف جريدة القبس)
Completed in 1976, the Central Bank of Kuwait was designed by acclaimed Danish architect Arne Jacobsen. However in 1985, changes to the design took place, giving it the appearance it has today. For more information about the transformation of the Central Bank, check out Dana Aljouder's "Monologues with Bureaucracy," available in our publication. (Image from Al-Qabas Newspaper archives)
