A celebration of Oman’s rich botanic diversity
With guidance from His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said, Oman Botanic Garden has been designed to celebrate the country’s botanic diversity and to be enjoyed by the people of Oman for generations to come.
Located 35 kilometres from Muscat, the Oman Botanic Garden covers 420 hectares which will make it the largest in the Arabian Peninsula, and amongst the largest in the world.
The site chosen is in the foothills of the Al Hajar Mountains and will be home to a visitor centre, education and research facilities as well as the Garden which will be centred around two awe-inspiring biomes.
The team, led by Arup alongside Grimshaw and Haley Sharpe Design (hsd), collaboratively worked to deliver the engineering, landscape design, architectural and interpretive design that befits the ambitious and creative brief given.
