Architectural Photowalks; A project created when Dima wanted a companion on her photowalks, posting about it on her personal instagram only to find 23 people show up. That first photowalk ended at a traditional cafe where the participants came up with the name over karak. And Arcwalk was born.
Season I went on from Nov. 2016 to May. 2017 & consisted of the following events:
Throughout centuries, our ancestors -from various civilizations- had successfully left their own architectural legacies, giving the following generations a look into their lives long after they had perished. Heck we probably learned the most about how we as human beings existed since early time from the architectural structures left to us. Architecture used to be timeless, made to stand whatever this world would throw upon it.
This "Legacy" is not something we have in common with our ancestors. We live in an era where architecture serves a temporary purpose. Buildings are not erected to last, only to be replaced once a more profitable option is available. We -the people of the 21st century- leave nothing behind.
Let's photo-preserve the hidden beauties around the streets of Kuwait, one building at a time.
