Located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Museum of the Built Environment was designed by FXFOWLE ARCHITECTS. As an educational public facility dedicated to the promotion of art and architecture in the built environment it is imperative that the finished concept is representative of potential of the design industry. The Museum will look to inform visitors on the social, economical and environmental issues that shape the artistic forms in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s urban realm.
Prismatic laminated glass panels create a shifting textual pattern across the thick upper levels of the complex, splintering the strong Riyadh sunlight across its many angled panes. This variation also enables FWFOWLE to control the intensity of the internal light within differing sections of the interior space.
