KAFD Geo-Science Centre
The Science Museum and Geo-Climate Centre celebrate Saudi Arabia’s contributions to science and environmental education in a pair of buildings centrally located in the King Abdullah Financial District. C7A’s design is derived from the fragmented and faceted forms of giant crystals found in nature. Crystalline shapes appear to grow out of the Plaza, creating the fractal architectural character of each building. Visitors enter each of the Museums at the Wadi level through lobbies, which act as information/orientation foyers for visitors. The Geo-Climate Centre’s lobby provides access to the museum and IMAX Theatre while the Science Museum features a multi-level lobby providing access to and from the Skywalks, Monorail, and Underground Garage.
