• Hajj, Mecca / SAUDI ARABIA

Sacred Landscapes + Spiritual Places

The new Master Plan for the city of Mecca presents a new urban layout centered around the sacred Haram. Lee and Associates created the new urban structure for Mecca by developing a network of pedestrian corridors to accommodate the rising number of Pilgrims arriving into the city. The corridors feature dramatic views of the Haram and offer a mixture of residential and commercial areas interwoven with cultural influences attractive to visitors and local residents.
