Bab Al Ard

A proposal for an Art Institute in Wadi Hanifa, Riyadh. It would be the first of its kind, and unique in Saudi Arabia. Bab Al Ardh is a mixed-use project on the scale of urban design, that includes artists’ studios, galleries, performance and event spaces, restaurants and cafes, art supply and book shops, as well as a formal garden that hovers above the site. Running through the scheme is a vast public social space that connects the upper level of the city to the garden-like wadi below.
