The Saudi embassy in India is designed to create symbols of protection as well as power the Kingdom has among the international community. The embassy design is a blend of cross architectural cultures; the abstraction of Najdi architecture and the modernity of Indian architecture.  Material used are earthy colors that go in harmony with the nature of the surrounding context. The spatial planning is inspired from the traditional neighborhood with its alleys and courtyards.
