Science Centers

King Salman Science Oasis

Promoting the change from an oil-producing to a knowledge society is a top priority in Saudi Arabia. The King Salman Science Oasis practically supports this mission: In collaboration with the High Commission for the Development of ArRiyadh, TRIAD Berlin is currently designing one of the first major science centers of the Arab world. Particularly for the younger generation, the 3,000-m2 "Science Oasis" will provide an opportunity to discover scientific topics through play.

AREA:

3,000 m2

At the science center, visitors "zoom in" to the topics: After a journey into space, they explore planet Earth, dive into the oceans to 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.
