King Saud University: a New Community in the Desert

King Saud University: a New Community in the Desert

A commission to design King Saud University on a desert site outside Riyadh helps elevate HOK’s reputation in the Middle East.

Ideas around ease of movement, separation of disciplines, the effects of climate and the creation of diffused lighting inspire the design. The design captures the sensibility of a desert citadel, with extraordinary spaces to be discovered within the protective, enclosing walls.
