KAFD Science Museum, Geo-Climate Centre, and Aquarium

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Three architecturally expressive science museums anchoring the new King Abdullah Fincancial District (KAFD): a five-story, 10,820-m² (116,466-ft²) Geo-Climate Centre, a four-story, 16,346-m² (175,947-ft²) Science Museum, and a six-level, 13,674 m² (147,189-ft²) aquarium with a theater, parking, and skybridges. The Geo-Climate Centre and Science Museum, linked by skybridges, share a 36,833-m² (396,467-ft²) public plaza and underground parking garage for 1,525 cars, and include a 300-seat IMAX theatre, two-story monorail station, and a 1,400-m² (15,000-ft²) planetarium. MKA’s civil design addressed plaza grading, stormwater management, and utilities above the parking structure.
