Riyadh’s new world-class financial district and its tallest structure, the PIF Tower designed by Omrania and HOK, were lit a brilliant shade of green, the national color, during Saudi National Day.
At times, architecture signifies the spirit of a nation. Omrania and HOK designed the PIF Tower, an 80-story skyscraper within the King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD), as a symbol of progress for Riyadh and Saudi Arabia as a whole. The building sets a new benchmark for tall building design and construction in the Kingdom and the region. From its structural efficiency to its high-performance façade, its environmental credentials, and its gracefully faceted form, the PIF Tower stands as a monument to the power of dreams grounded in real possibilities. We thank the photographers who have shared their excellent images of the PIF Tower and the urban landscape of the KAFD during this national holiday.
