Scientific Center of Kuwait Expansion

Architectural and exhibit design for Kuwait aquarium and science museum addition

Cambridge Seven Associates is working with Gulf Consult to design a new 220,000-square-foot addition to The Scientific Center of Kuwait, nearly doubling the size of the original science museum and aquarium completed by C7A and GC in 2000. Located along the waterfront, this new addition will present the world of marine mammals and will house a large feature tank and a science center containing a new generation of interactive exhibits. C7A/GC designed a series of interior pavilions to respond to the various programmatic needs, housed together under a large, graceful roof structure. Along the waterfront, a new 4D theatre and restaurant will be introduced, while the facilities along Gulf Road include a conference center, support functions, an exploration garden, and staff offices.
