ABSTRACT: The Red Sea is referred to as the Underwater Tropical Forest; with its marvelous unique coral reefs and magnificent marine life. The Red Sea in Jeddah has inspired most of the famous sightseeing and therefore has enhanced its tourism. The Red Sea is a rich ecosystem with its various species, unique vegetation, and coral reefs of hundreds of years old that lay along the Saudi shores and coastlines. However, manmade actions have affected marine life in general and coral reefs in specific and caused environmental pollution, and global warming. This thesis is a capstone research that proposes an architectural solution for this environmental harm. The proposed project is a Marine Science Research Park. The thesis first states the goals and objectives of the project; second explains the proposed site’s analysis, third the project’s program and components, and finally concludes the site zoning diagrams. The research has used both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies through using various types of references taken from books, different media, personal interviews, and performing surveys.
