After opening a new monumental project in Saudi Arabia's Diriyah last year, Zaha Hadid Architects have just opened the doors to a non-profit institution, aptly titled the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Centre (KAPSARC), in Riyadh. In correlation with Saudi Design Week, Zaha Hadid Architects continue to grow their presence in the Middle East and with the new building comes the late starchitect's signature style — think traditional elements, structured frameworks and geometrically-pleasing components — not to mention the 530,000 square meter property comes complete with all white interiors.
