Skywalks in King Abdullah Financial District
The vision behind Henning Larsen Architects’ masterplan for the new financial district in Riyadh is to create a modern, sustainable city based on a minimum of private motoring.
From the decentralised parking garages, a monorail brings people to six different stations in the new district. A network of footbridges – so-called Skywalks – departs from the stations and connects the various buildings in the area.
Location: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
