 Re-cast is an architectural photography exhibition organized by CAP and sponsored by Pace. The exhibition showcases the works of local architects who have all undergone a 5-day workshop under the guidance of Samer Yamani and Gunnar Knechtel, where buildings were documented, assessed, and manipulated to create an entirely new perspective of the architecture. Some of the works displayed were truly fascinating. I’ve always thought that nothing can capture the personality of a building like a good picture can, and this was exactly the case here.

The 3rd Qout market -and first of 2014- will be taking place tomorrow Saturday Jan. 4th at Al Raya Center’s Car Park rooftop from 10 am – 7pm.

The charity petting zoo is back and will be open all day, @FSRI will be hosting an entire lane of children’s activities for their nonprofit, and @AsnanTower will have a charity kitchen featuring local celebrities and chefs raising money for the hungry.
Lots of delicious things to experience, try, and buy. Look for the ATM machine by the Qout Market welcome desk along with a water station to keep you hydrated while you shop. Don’t forget to grab your locally made, hand-printed Qout Market tote bag. This month’s illustration is the eggplant!

P2BK 2013 is just around the corner and yesterday I got to have a first look at the huge, huge project. This year’s is nothing like the past years. The people behind the expo truly set some high standards to be followed. Whether with their creativity or execution.

This year a whole village was built from scratch over an area of 20,000 m2. The village houses booths for local small businesses, cafes and fast food restaurants, sand sculptures, and endless things to see.

P2BK will launch this Wednesday 6 Mar 2013 from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm at Mishref Fairgrounds, behind hall 4.

With no further ado, here are the photos.

The vintage style booths. This area reminds me so much of Mubarakiya.

Yup. That is in fact.. The one and only Darth Vader along with the stormtroopers, dancing Kuwaiti style, with their light sabers.

And that is one sentence I never thought I’d say.

The sand village is the biggest in the middle east. 9 American artists sculpted Kuwait’s most popular landmarks in sand. Great great work.
