KING ABDULLAH CITY FOR ATOMIC & RENEWABLE ENERGY

  • THE ADVANCED DESIGN GROUP WAS INVOLVED IN PROVIDING A GENERATIVE PATH AND BRIDGE SYSTEM FOR THE KING ABDULLAH CITY FOR ATOMIC AND RENEWABLE ENERGY (KACARE) IN SAUDI ARABIA.
  • The project designed by LAVA architects is set in a dramatic landscape with valleys created by seasonal rivers. The generative system is set up as a series of steps forming a workflow. The first step consists of simulation of how the water would move and concentrate in various places on site. In the second step a continuous path system is extracted depending on the relative water levels in the simulation. The third and final step locates and proposes a system of bridges that minimizes the amount and lengths of bridges and improves accessibility between different parts of the routes.
