ABSTRACT: This research examines the Saudi‟s society concern of education, learning and spreading knowledge among the young. It also features on realizing a project that would raise the awareness of reading as well as extending the appreciation of cultural arts among Saudi‟s societies. “Cultural Knowledge Park” represents one of the most important projects that would contribute to bridge the gap between the society‟s education needs and the availability of public knowledge parks. Chapter one deals with the definition of the project, the concept and philosophy behind its design and the broader objectives of the project. It also outlines the analysis of some selected case studies to explore the principles behind its design. Chapter two examines the project‟s program and the spaces required for each function. The criteria of selecting the project site are dealt with in chapter three. It also outlines the site analysis with emphasis on the city context, climate, location and geography. Detailed zoning for all the project buildings have also been included. Finally, chapter four represents developments of the project and the final proposal.
