Zaha Hadid appointed to Riyadh metro station

Zaha Hadid Architects has been appointed to design the new King Abdullah Financial District Metro Station in Riyadh in Saudia Arabia.

A new public transport system is being built in Riyadh to serve its fast-growing population.

The 20,434 sq m metro station will serve as a key interchange on the network for three lines of the new Riyadh Metro, as well as having access to a local monorail accessed from a skybridge.

The metro station will feature six platforms over four public fours and two levels of underground car parking.

Zaha Hadid Architects said: “The project extends beyond the simple station typology to emphasise the building’s importance as a dynamic, multi-functional public space; not only an intermediate place perceived through quick transitions, but also a dramatic public space for the city.”

The new Riyadh Metro will be completed in the next four years.
