This cultural venue, designed by Atkins, includes a 2,000-seat hall, which is able to transform into three configurations: a theatre, a concert hall or a ‘flat floor’ form intended for banquets and events. The design is inspired by the form of a dhow, a traditional sailing vessel from the Arabian Gulf.

The elongated ‘hull’ will include waiting areas for spectators and a taxi-drop off area.
