Kuwaiti retail therapy from Gensler
One part of the world still in thrall to giant retail malls is Kuwait where work is underway on the third phase of the cities largest shopping centre.

Designed by Gensler for developer Manabee it embodies the staple western mall format but spiced up with a few regional twists.

Amongst them is a Bazaar located underground and modelled upon the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul and a Souk, designed to provide space for independent start up retailers.

This amalgam of regional vernacular and international commerce is scheduled to open in 2012.
