The King Abdullah Financial District stop will be covered in a three-dimensional lattice with sculpted curves.

Zaha Hadid has won a competition to design the King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) metro station in Saudi Arabia. Her winning proposal consists of six platforms over four public floors and two levels of underground car parking.

The station will be integrated within the urban context of the financial district and the design will emphasis the building's importance as a multi-functional public space. It will feature a three-dimensional lattice with sculpted curves. These sine-waves were generated from the repetition and frequency variation of the station's daily traffic flows.
