Aerial View of Riyadh

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

    

About:

    

City Concept:

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

    

Function:

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)
