Snøhetta and Gerber Architekten in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia)
In the wake of the approval of Zaha Hadid’s winning proposal for the KAFD (King Abdullah Financial District) of Riyadh, it has been announced that Snøhetta’s project for the Qasr Al Hokm stop and Gerber Architekten’s for the Olaya depot complete the new trio of main hubs of the Saudi capital’s suburban railway network, which now counts 85 stations.

With these the stations seek to be new architectural icons with the city’s urban fabric.
