MyWorld: Ultra-Modern Building

DSCF5708 1
Saudi Arabia is steeped in culture, tradition and religion and in many ways, it feels as though you are stepping back in time. Yet the newer construction in Jeddah can be unbelievably modern and unique. This building is quite an unusual shape and design and, like many of the modern business buildings, makes use of lots of blue reflective glass for a clean and sleek look that compliments the backdrop of the Red Sea which Jeddah is built along. The rainbow colored design which runs up the heighth of the building is really different and reminds me of a child’s musical keyboard toy.

    Isn’t this the building that’s going up on the corniche by the wealthy dude’s house, the one where he build a huge metal shack over his property so you couldn’t see in?
