The Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency in Riyadh by Minoru Yamasaki in 1981. The architect, already known to blend Islamic forms with concrete in his Saudi projects, creates this as the pinnacle of his work in the Kingdom. The travertine and bronze clad façade shroud an introversive atrium that reflects an unknown paradise. The atrium regulates climate and creates a quiet, contemplative atmosphere that is shielded from the loud and sweltering air of the exterior. In addition it tames the harsh sunlight and gently allows it to enter through its skylights. The hallways around the it feature verandas formed by elegant, graceful travertine screens that turn the hard material into a lace-like substance. The manipulation of these qualities makes this a flawless example of the modernization of Islamic architecture.
