Kuwait National Assembly Architect : Jørn Utzon

The Kuwait National Assembly famously slings a huge curved canvas over the main spaces: square, parliamentary chamber, large conference hall, and mosque. The building is rectangular in plan but fairly irregular within this parti. The canvas fabric of the building recalls the use of concrete at the Bagsværd Church.
