    The 79-storey Central Market Authority Tower will be the centre-piece of the King Abdullah Financial District in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia with the aim of promoting the Saudi capital as a major regional business hub.

    The tower’s angular façade isn’t just for aesthetic appeal as it features a high performance solar system, reducing the overall thermal loads placed on the building.
