Fascinating Biomes inspired by ships sails and the historic Spice Route
- Location Dammam, Saudi Arabia

- Credits Joint Venture with Omrania
The proposed scheme aims to reflect the future potential of the city of Dammam whilst also recognising the City’s history and origins. With this in mind, the form and concept of the scheme have evolved following research into two key themes of the spice trail and the shipping history.
We are at the beginning of a fascinating journey, a sentiment we share with the explorers and traders who set out from this very place so long ago. The Biomes reflect a single language throughout the entire scheme, where each of the biomes incrementally grow in proportion. It encompasses the concept of Sails and the Spice Route. The scheme connects four different biomes (climatic) areas with their corresponding gardens, activities and events. Its surrounding areas relate directly to the biomes through semi-controlled environments.
