The Architecture & Design sector represents the creative expression of designing the built environment, products and communicating ideas with an aesthetic and functional value. An integral part of the Kingdom’s culture, it is a reflection of Saudi Arabia’s vibrant heritage. The sector includes various disciplines, including architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and planning, interior design, graphic design, and industrial design. The Architecture and Design Commission aims to develop the sector, support practitioners in the field, and build an Architectural and Design scene that mirrors the Kingdom’s rich and diverse culture while keeping up with global practices.
