If I remember correctly, this illuminated building is the KAUST Library (KAUST is King Abdullah University of Science and Technology). Sorry but I’m not sure what material was used to create the translucent outer walls which are illuminated at night from withiin and create a spectacular image. To me, the material evokes seashells, which is appropriate given the university’s location on the Red Sea.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
