Workers stretch woven tapestries on frames in preparation for hanging (picture
above). Special mounting brackets are fixed into the wall structure in
preparation for hanging the tapestry panels (picture below).
Below, workers on scaffolding lift the large tapestry
panels designed by a Kuwaiti artist into place. The wall hangings were hand-woven in
Tunisia. In addition to their decorative effect evident in the Multi-function Hall, and Office Floors, the enormous carpet panels
also enhance the acoustics in these large spaces.
"Night in the Desert," a wool tapestry in five parts is hung in
the Multi-function Hall (picture
