A KAPSARC delegation headed by President Fahad Alajlan was invited to visit the experience center of the LINE- a curated exhibit of the different concepts and designs that explain what the LINE is.
The line is a veritable crucible of some very cutting edge and futuristic ideas of sustainable living. These are ideas that, by design, address the current dysfunctionality of urban living – the energy consumption, pollution, inaccessible economic and educational opportunities, and the severe impact on the resources of the planet.
The exhibition showcased the different approaches taken by the contributing architects to the different needs of urban living – the residential areas, office and commercial spaces, schools and universities, playgrounds and stadiums. The overlay of the materials, structure and infrastructure showcased by the very detailed models brought to life what these solutions would look like.
The Line holds the vision that while cities have been a major contributor to climate change, declining livability standards and dysfunctional societies, they can be designed to become a part of the solution in a proactive manner.
Sustainability is a key pillar of KAPSARC's mission, and the visit highlights how important it is to embed sustainability into a city's DNA. The LINE's energy efficient designs, the smart technologies, optimized and regulated infrastructure system resonate with the work being done by KAPSARC.
We thank the LINE team for the invitation and for hosting us.
