Aerial View of Riyadh

Location: Al-Faisaliyah Tower, Olaiya Town, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia




City Concept:

Riyadh, the Capital has one main axis in which the urban growth takes place vertically while its surroundings takes place horizontally.



The ring road around the end sides of the City approximately in squared shape and link to the industrial city

While there are two main roads crossing each others: The first is named by King Fahd Road (North - South) and the 2nd is Khrais Road (East - West) and both begin and end from the ring Road, and they met each other very near to the downtown.

The towns are composed in Rectangular / Squared Shape. Also the Main streets are organised through Grid. i.e. the towns are separated from each other at the crossing of 2 main streets.

While The collector and the interior streets are prevented from street crossing and they are placed inside a town (Al-Morog Town for example)
