The Kuwait National Assembly Building, designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon in 1972, was completed in 1982 under the direction of his son Jan. The structural design was by Max Walt. The building was seriously damaged in February 1991 when the retreating Iraqi troops set it on fire but it has since been restored.

KW Parliament


The design of the National Assembly in Kuwait is reminiscent of a souk, while the canopy mimics Bedouin desert tents. During Gulf War I, the retreating Iraqi forces set fire to the building, resulting in partial damage that has since been restored. The Parliament was the first of the region and plays an active role in monitoring the government, as it has the constitutional right to approve and disapprove the ruling emir.
