Abstract: We were commissioned to work under the direction of the High Commission for the Development of Riyadh, the agency responsible for all large projects in the city. When we were asked to submit a plan for the Justice Palace District, some proposals had already been made, but none had proved acceptable to all concerned. Incidentally, the name "Justice Palace District" may be misleading; the project now involves the whole city center of Riyadh. Originally the project included only the main mosque, the administrative center, and some commercial areas. After evaluating the conditions there, we concluded that it would be very difficult to carry out any coherent plan in the area given. It would probably have been sufficient for a project involving a single building, but not for developing the area in a way that would meet the expectations that the administration had. So we went back to the High Commission and were given a more reasonable delineation of space in which a designer could define the problems and suggest solutions.
