During the 70-day public festival known as Riyadh Season, amateur and professional photographers turned their lenses on the life and culture of Riyadh, including popular architectural landmarks like the Kingdom Centre. Omrania is honored to contribute to the built environment of this growing metropolis.
Riyadh Season has been a great celebration of the life of the city and its people. The two-month long festival included hundreds of music and theater performances, art exhibitions, sports events, pop-up dining, and other cultural and entertainment programs in the Saudi capital. Countless people have come together to celebrate Saudi heritage and imagine a bright future. In that spirit, we are humbled to see the Kingdom Centre, a 300-meter tower we designed in association with Ellerbe Becket, lit by fireworks and attracting the attention of talented photographers. Here are a few recent photos that caught our eye.
