The short film we made for “formlessfinder” and the Architecture League 2020 Exhibition captures the juxtaposition of desert landscape nothingness against the rapid infrastructural development in Kuwait. It escalates with formlessfinder’s proposal for the Sabbiyah Highway Archeology and Infrastructure Research Center that takes confluence as its starting point, proposing that building new infrastructure and excavating ancient sites are fundamentally related processes.
