MiSK City is one of the cornerstone projects of Saudi Arabia Vision 2030. It will provide a vibrant environment built to empower young Saudi talent, fostering human capital and the knowledge economy. It will be a fully integrated place to live, work, and play. The total land area of MiSK City is about 3.36 Million square meters.
MiSK City development master plan consists of a number of distinctive districts and neighborhoods which are connected by a series of boulevards and promenades, tunnels, and bridges.
The Forum Bridge is one of the main features of MiSK City is the stunning and dramatic shape of the landscape, mainly defined by the Wadi Hanifa. While most of the City´s buildings will be built in areas above the Wadi, the different connections across the Wadi and the option of accessing the Wadi will be of utmost importance with regard to functionality, communication, and mobility but also to atmosphere and emotion. The bridges across the Wadi are therefore important buildings not only serving as a functional connection but also as accelerators for the MiSK City life.
The Forum Bridge is pivotal for the development of Phase 1a, as it is the connection of three important areas and elements of MiSK Forum as well as the initial phase of the Lifeline. During the master plan development, AS+P created the idea of a bridge, that also is a communication hub and access to the Wadi via a vertical connection.
