#647 Arab Fund Building, Kuwait

The Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development (AFESD) is a Kuwait-based finance group established by the Arab League in 1972. Their headquarters are in Kuwait City, and although they aren't a traditional tourist site, by appointment, you can request a tour of the magnificent facilities. 
Built along Arab design principles and incorporating specific decorative elements from across the Arab world, it is peaceful, airy and beautiful. It includes a large central atrium (8 floors high!) with wooden latticed windows leading into meeting rooms and other quiet alcoves. Craftsmanship from many countries was incorporated in the beautiful tile zellij, lush carpets, delicate stained class compositions, and fine wood carving. Enormous intricate chandeliers are hung in all areas and the brass doorknobs impress!
