Undulating lattices, Zaha Hadid’s metro station in Riyadh

Waves in the walls and roof define Zaha Hadid’s competition-winning design for the new station of Riyadh’s KAFD (King Abdullah Financial District). This interchange of the Saudi Arabian capital connects three underground lines and gives access, through a bridge, to a monorail system. The structure of four floors and two subterranean parking levels creates a network of footbridges through the building to optimize circulation and minimize congestion. Construction is scheduled to begin this summer and finish in 2017.
