On the northwest coast of the Red Seas lies an ambitious Saudi tourism project for the ultra rich. The Amaala resort will soon have it’s own airport and the plans are stunning.
The name Amaala is an apparent mashup of two words that represent hope and purity and it’s easy to see why this is an appropriate name for this lavish resort.
Situated on a remote part of the northwestern Red Sea, the resort is targeted for the world’s ultra wealthy and they will soon have a new airport.
The airport promises to be unlike any other airport and it’s 1 million annual guest will be treated to an architectural masterpiece.
With it’s roots in the desert mirage the airport will rise from the deserts sands shimmering and shifting with an air of uncertainty. The Foster + Partners design team envisions travelers being “treated to a piece of art rising from the desert” as they approach.
