In collaboration with the “High Commission for the Development of ArRiyadh,” TRIAD Berlin is designing one of the first major science centers of the Arab world. In this 3,000-square-meter “knowledge oasis,” the younger generation in particular is introduced to scientific topics in a playful way.

The King Salman Science Oasis develops its subject areas on the basis of a “zoom story”: After a journey into space, visitors explore planet Earth, dive into the oceans, discover the miracle of life, and finally venture into the world of molecules and atoms. Within the center’s atmospheric spatial compositions, more than 100 interactive stations allow visitors to learn more about scientific phenomena. Media, objects, and texts create tangible connections between findings of the natural sciences and the history, geography, culture, climate, fauna, and flora of the Arab world.

The opening is planned for 2019.
