Riyadh: Kingdom Centre

Kingdom Centre is no doubt a spectacular landmark in the skyline of Saudi Arabia's capital city of Riyadh.  Housing a popular shopping mall called Al Mamlaka, plus the elegant five star Four Seasons Hotel, several restaurants, a conference center and wedding hall, and floors of luxury apartments, this slick and graceful building is the third tallest of its kind in the world, featuring a hole through the building.  Visible for miles around, the top opening of the skyscraper is lit up at night, awash in changing colors like green, blue, and purple.
