JEDDAH: Saudi architectural students are being invited to enter a competition to design a new community center for the coastal village of The Red Sea Development Co. (TRSDC).
The winner will have the chance to become part of the ambitious Red Sea Project and see his or her design become a reality. It will be at the heart of the plans and provide an array of amenities — including a public library, childcare facilities, a gym and a mosque — for RSDC employees, their families and all those working to develop the destination.
“The essence of the Red Sea Project’s vision is providing young Saudis with opportunities in line with the Kingdom’s 2030 Vision,” said RSDC CEO John Pagano at the launch of the competition. “With the project rapidly developing, it seeks to attract Saudi talents to join us on this journey.
“We are glad to provide a creative platform for Saudi designers to showcase their experiences and talents, and later implement them on the ground.”
