Al Faisaliah II



  • 20140507-001


Phase 1 / Project led by Rem Koolhaas, Reinier de Graaf

Phase 2 / Partner in Charge: Aras Burak

What could be the next step for the designers of the CCTV to push the limits of the skyscraper design. Only when the client gives no budget limit and no height restrictions, it is possible to imagine a new loop skyscraper. The proposal is located right next to the Al Faisaliah Hotel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The loop tower would connect the Foster’s mall with the Tange’s office building in Riyadh. The building is twisted joining in the middle of the whole height, allowing two meeting points to happen in a single skyscraper instead of one connecting bridge, like CCTV.
