After a one month blockage at the customs, two days ago we received the physical model of the airport. Due to the extreme temperature, the petroleum based parts of the model lose their flexibility and bumped to the limit. Some of them indeed was fractured, if you’re lucky you can spot them from the photos. Now i fix them all, there are thing that i can’t do but for the rest they seem ok.
This is a photo from the autopark, it’s a very common stereotype for the autoparks, here they always do the same shader for cars.
A monumental entrance like in all kitschy projects. Resembling the same geometrical shape for all airport projects. I guess the first time that i have seen geometries was from Calatrava.
I really like this photo it’s so cute, i can’t remember the name of this photo style but it was a model photo stereotype. When i remember i will edit here.
Common roundabouts from Saudi Arabia, these are really a pain the ass in the traffic because there is no traffic rule here. A couple of days before, we go to times around it because we could not turn to the way we want. People are driving like crazy it’s hard to anticipate what will they do next.
These are Hajj Pavilions, they are for the people who comes for hajj, a series of temporary buildings. There are five of them and all of them has membranes, air conditioners will be cooling inside, wall will be from drywall or block wall i’m not sure about that.
Yeah, that’s the Mosque, which was positioned in a wrong angle for Mecca. It was 6 degrees or something, they now fixed the foundation and they are continuing the constructions. Was a big mess when they found out that it’s not facing the right direction for Mecca.
This is a photo from the first section model. I did not checked but it was a 1:50 scaled section representation. This is the Terminal Buildings entrance.
As always, i really don’t say anything about designs in a negative way especially when i reconsider the county that i work now. Yes you should have laughed now, whatever. This steel structure is based on a Palm Tree as every other thing here . Designs still based on things like hey this county has apples, lets make them an apple airfield.
