King Abdulaziz Center for Knowledge

Norwegian architects, Snøhetta has won the competition to design King Abdulaziz Center for Knowledge and Culture in Saudi Arabia. The design concept is “the history of oil in Saudi Arabia”.

May 20th 2008, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz set the cornerstone for the cultural centre which will house a museum, library, theatre, cinema and more. The building reflects the history of oil in Saudi Arabia and is different from the country’s architectonic traditions with its abstract and spectacular form.
