I’ve been meaning to change the site for a while now and I finally got around to doing that. The improvements are mostly cosmetic, a new header and color scheme. It looks a lot more optimistic now, and that’s a feeling that we hope reflects what we write about.
re:kuwait is now 9 months old. We’ve been pleasantly surprised by the positive response and we’re thankful for all the views, but we don’t think that we have really achieved what we set out to accomplish yet. Our goal is to communicate with non-architects about urban design and architecture, and how a good built environment can affect peoples lives for the better. There are a lot of venues to discuss these ideas, but they’re mostly happening in echo chambers amongst architects and peers, and the message isn’t expanding to the general public.
We created this website to talk about architectural ideas and issues in a way that appeals to everyone. The hope is that it will help incite a change in mentality. I don’t know how successful we’ve been, but i’m sure we can do a lot better. Thanks for reading and please be involved as much as you can by asking questions and commenting.
