Saudi Arabia, Gulf area witnessed substantial change in idea of city construction

(MENAFN) According to a UK-based architectural expert, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf area have witnessed a substantial change in the idea of city construction, with updated infrastructure plans considering methods to enhance people's lives and experiences rather than being "purely a utilitarian reaction."

Managing principle for Europe and the Middle East at the international design and engineering company HOK, Daniel Hajjar, stated, "It's all about how can you create a tremendous sensation of being in a city and having a wonderful experience."

“Particularly in Saudi Arabia, you’re seeing a lot more use of those types of facilities, because there’s a lot more encouragement to sort of knock down both physical and figurative walls within the Kingdom. And I think that’s a very good thing, as it’s only a matter of time before you will begin to see, and you’re already seeing it, much more engagement from Saudis in their own country,” he informed Arab News in a recent exclusive interview.
