  • Complex consisting of two tall buildings tilted (15°) towards each other, in the Plaza de Castilla, are also called Puerta de Europa. Clad in glass, aluminum and steel, both at the Summit have a heliport. Built by a Kuwaiti company at the entrance of the driveway from the North to the city, in my opinion, due to their shape and arrangement, the Arch of victory in Baghdad. Overall, in my opinion, a monumental ugliness.

  • Beautiful towers that lean to each other as if the Japanese saudassem. The company was called shareholder KIO (sounds like Japanese) causing these towers would be known by that name. NB: KIO means Kuwait Investment Office. Be sure to be able to see them.
