KAPSARC - Exteriors

Riyadh / Saudi Arabia

Architects: Zaha Hadid

Situated on the northern edge of Riyadh is an oasis of organic design: a 500,000+ square meter complex, a stretched cellular structure that evokes the dunes in the surrounding desert. It spills outward from the Place of Icon, the nucelal open-air plaza whose overhead canopies usher cooling breezes and are tuned to the sun’s passage, perfectly diffusing natural light throughout each day. As in nature, right angles have no place here.
