"Kuwait Water Towers"
In 1965, the government of Kuwait commissioned the Swedish engineering company of VBB (since 1997 Sweco) to develop and implement a plan for a modern water-supply system for Kuwait City. The company built five groups of altogether 31 tower designed by its chief architect "Sune Lindström", called "the mushroom towers".Each tower holds 3,000 cubic meters of water. The tower groups are distinguished by number, height, color and ornamentation and they serve as landmarks for their districts.For a sixth site, the Amir of Kuwait, Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed, wanted a more spectacular design. This last group, known as "Kuwait Towers", consists of three towers, two of which also serve as water towers. These thirty-three towers have together a standard capacity of 102,000 cubic meters of water.The Kuwait Tower and the Kuwait Water Towers were awarded the Aga Khan Award for Architecture (1980 Cycle) Sources:1- wikipedia.org2-Book: "Kuwait: The making of a city" By Stephen Gardiner
