King Abdul Aziz Foundation for Research and Archives
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
This complex is part of the Saudi National Museum and is built over the old King Abdul Aziz quarter, a mud brick ensemble dating from the early 1900s. The project contains a memorial hall, a car exhibition, an academic section, and a recreational garden, and is designed to wrap the existing mud brick structure with a new envelope to achieve urban and temporal continuity.
