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.
An urban representation of a natural watercourse: from water spring to a trickle of water with its sinuous path, steaming geysers, and mist effects.
Architect: François Tribel
Nature is a source of infinite inspiration; mist is a fascinating natural element. The concept is based on creating an artificial cloud that hovers over the ground.
Landscape Architect : Michel Corajoud
The hydraulic system allows for programming a hybrid fountain: the basin can be emptied and filled up “on demand”, according to seasons and activities.
Landscape Architect : Paulet
The vast water area reflects the proximity of the ocean. Lisbon’s pleasant climate is a particular help for enjoying fountains freshness.
Architects : Benoy London
Joyful aquatic playground. Water “pirouettes”, spurting jets and mists between the colourful mounds.
Landscape Architect : Hervé Rosset DH Paysage
Inspired by Venice’s St. Mark’s Square flooding naturally in winter, 3.000 square meters flooded with a thin layer of water with a mist effect when the water disappears.
