Luxury Hotel, Mecca, Saudi Arabia

As part of a master plan project in 2008, Robin Chiang & Company (RCCo) was commissioned by EDAW to help plan a new town of 500,000 people just outside of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, and to develop distinct architectural character for each of its districts. The sketches shown here focus on a district that feature a luxury hotel, a university campus and plenty of retail space for shopping. RCCo created guidelines for this district to emphasize its urban character and sense of place.
