Bahrain’s iconic Green Corner Building has made it to the cover of El Croquis, a bilingual English-Spanish magazine specialised in international designs and architectural works.
The magazine embellished the cover of its latest issued with a picture of the iconic edifice, which is part of the Shaikh Ibrahim bin Mohammed Al-Khalifa Centre for Culture and Research in the City Muharraq, reported BNA.
A floor of the four-storey building will be allocated to restoration of old paintings and books, and another will be used for cultural promotion in Bahrain.
This is the second time El Croquis, one of the most prestigious architectural magazines in the world, values an iconic building in Bahrain, after dedicating its cover for the first time to the “Dar Al-Muharraq”, which is run by the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities, stated the report.
Apart from the Green Corner Building, the issue of El Croquis features pictures of the Archaeologies of Green, the pavilion of the Kingdom of Bahrain, which won the silver award at the Expo Milano 2015.
It is a poetic interpretation of the cultural agrarian heritage of the country, which stems from the ancient civilization of Dilmun.
It also features the renovated iconic Qaisariah Souqa and the Bahrain Post (former customs building), which was revamped under the supervision of the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities, said the BNA report.
The magazine additionally showcased other future projects as part of the Pearl Path, which features in the Unesco List of World Heritage Sites – including the Siadi Majis, Pearl Museum and Murad House.
