    Saudi Arabia will soon boast its stock exchange to be built in Riyadh. Designed by Nikken Sekkei, architects from Japan who beat 31 international companies to secure this contract, the Saudi Stock Exchange Headquarters will soar 50 stories high for a cost of SAR1 billion (€179 million). The building will use a whole load of sustainable systems and green energy saving technologies. To name a few, the building will use solar shading, dry mist cooling of exteriors, mirror ducts to enhance natural light in lower levels, photovoltaics and a cool trench to pre-cool fresh air for circulation. The Saudi Stock Exchange or Tadawul, will comply with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards (LEED) and the green building rating system by the USGB.

    Saudi Arabia can now proudly flaunt its cool new clean and green Stock Exchange designed by the Japanese.
