Scandinavian Design


Kuwait is getting real tired of your shit guys.

The Kuwait National Assembly Building was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the same guy who designed the Sydney Opera House. To illustrate his idea to the Kuwaiti people, he used a row of empty beer bottles.

When the Kuwaiti people asked the Swedish architect Sune Lindström for a new tower, his original idea was to make it mushroom shaped, but he was asked to change the design, so Sune's Danish wife Malene Bjørn made a new design which is now Kuwait's most famous building.

The Towers were build before the National Assembly. I just thought it was funnier this way.

I imagine the person designing the Eiffel Tower just got drunk, stared at the alphabet and went "Yes! I love that letter, A, you shall be my sweetheart! I shall shape my tower just for you!" And thus, it was born. (Also did you know, the Eiffel Tower shrinks a few " in winter)

In my engineering class last year, we had to do a project where we would build and test a balsa wood tower on an earthquake simulator. My tower was based on a vacuum cleaner hose, and I got 2cd place. 1st place went to somebody who based their tower on a pineapple.
