Art collective teamLab and the Saudi Ministry of Culture are moving forward with the construction of a major new museum in the Jeddah Historic District, which is set to open in the summer of 2024. Exhibiting over 50 experiential artworks by the collective using digital technology, teamLab Borderless Jeddah will be the first-ever middle east location of the record-breaking museum. The immense building, spanning approximately 10,000 sqm of gross floor area, is progressing steadily towards completion on the shores of Alarbaeen Lagoon, overlooking panoramic views of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The project is part of the ministry’s revitalization program for the Jeddah Historic District.

immersing visitors in boundless art amid a unesco site

 

teamLab Borderless is a world of artworks without boundaries, a museum without a map created by the Japanese art collective. Artworks move out of rooms, communicate with other works, influence, and sometimes intermingle with each other with no limitations, forming one borderless world. As people immerse their body in this art, they ‘wander, explore, and discover’. When teamLab Borderless first opened its doors in Tokyo in June 2018, the museum welcomed over 2.3 million annual visitors, and set the world record for the most visited museum by a single art group. As a collaborative initiative between the Saudi Ministry of Culture and teamLab, the all-new teamLab Borderless Jeddah will break new grounds in the MENA cultural landscape.

the program

 

The immense teamLab Borderless Jeddah will comprise the Borderless World, Athletics Forest, Future Park, Forest of Lamps, as well as EN TEA HOUSE, exhibiting some 80 independent yet intricately interrelated works. teamLab Athletics Forest is a creative athletic space based on the concept of understanding the world through the body and thinking about the world three-dimensionally. It trains spatial recognition and promotes the growth of the hippocampus of the brain. People immerse their entire body in the complex and physically challenging three-dimensional space of the interactive world.

Meanwhile, the teamLab Future Park is an experimental educational project based on the concept of collaborative creation (co-creation). It is an amusement park where people can enjoy creating the world freely with others. At the tea house inside teamLab Borderless, make tea and a flower blooms inside the teacup. Flowers bloom infinitely as long as there is tea. The tea in the bowl becomes an infinite world in which the flowers continue to bloom. Drink in the infinitely expanding world.
