A Momentary Flow

Evolving Worldviews

Zaha Hadid Architects are designing a new metro station in Riyadh, Saudia Arabia described as “a three-dimensional lattice defined by a sequence of opposing sine-waves (generated from the repetition and frequency variation of station’s daily traffic flows) which act as the spine for the building’s circulation.” Basically, that means that the station has a unique, undulating facade that mimics the daily flow of traffic for Riyadh’s 5 million residents.

The King Abdullah FInancial District (KAFD) Metro Station will become a focal point for the city, not only as a hub for commuters, but also as a celebrated public space. The KAFD is scheduled to be completed by 2017 and will help ease the traffic congestion in the area.

See ArRiyadh Development Authority’s modern train station design in the gallery below. Don’t you wish this was coming to a city near you? (via Futuristic metro station planned for Riyadh, Saudi Arabia | DVICE)
