JML Consultants designed five unique water features that will enhance the artistic and sensorial richness of the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture. Within the surrounding outdoor grounds the Ithra water Labyrinth, Third oasis, Childrens oasis and Source water features positively engage and interact with the public.
The fountain design is based on the golden ratio, “le nombre d’or”. According to this principle, water jets have been set up in squares and triangles.
This major city axis has been transformed inserting various fountains: the dry water feature becomes a meeting place.
An axis of water defines the spatial composition of the park. A central water square dedicated to kids is framed by basins planted with water lilies and a dynamic cascade with surging waves.
