Walk The Line Futuristic City At This Riyadh Exhibition

NEOM is the futuristic vision of what everyday living will look like in the not so far future. In northwestern Saudi Arabia, the launch of THE LINE Experience is open for all to visit! This is the third edition of the exhibition that will present NEOM’s futuristic city’s groundbreaking urban designs in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

THE LINE Experience will be hosted at the Diriyah Biennale Foundation for Contemporary Art at Diriyah’s JAX district, and will is welcoming visitors until 29th April 2023.

This particular version of THE LINE exhibition is an inspiring and engaging experience that takes visitors through the urban planning and architectural features that will redefine the way people will live in THE LINE, whilst also being able to get a detailed view of NEOM’s sectors and the natural landscapes that surrounds it. It will be a place “where people and technology will come together in harmony with nature.”

Far from the way cities in the past and present have functioned until date, THE LINE plans to run on 100 percent renewable energy and will prioritize health and well-being over transportation and infrastructure. Some of the most important design elements of the city are that it is 200 meters wide, 170 kilometers long and rises 500 meters above sea level. It is spread across 34 square kilometers, and the futuristic city’s “small footprint” will take part in conserving 95% of NEOM’s land whilst also promoting environmental sustainability. It is expected that this unique city will become home to nine million residents.

Based on the futuristic concept of ‘Zero Gravity Urbanism,’ which brings to life the notion of “layering city functions vertically” whilst creating gateways to allow for inhabitants to commute across the city in three directions – up, down and across. This idea will make mobility throughout the city simple and will offer speedy access to schools, parks, residences, offices and more. THE LINE’s innovative design will be created in such a way that all “facilities and amenities can be accessed within a five-minute walk,” according to a released statement about the upcoming project.

THE LINE Experience’s plans were first announced by Crown Prince and Chairman of the NEOM Board of Directors Mohammed bin Salman in July 2022.

THE LINE Experience is open from Sunday through Thursday: 9am – 11pm; Thursday and Saturday: 9am – 12am and visitors will also be able to receive guided tours in both Arabic and English. Visitors can register and receive their free tickets for the exhibition via THE LINE website
