Rabat theatre in Morocco, by Zaha Hadid

Rabat Grand Theatre – a new landmark is going to appear at the heart of Moroccan capital Rabat, by 2014 . The modern design of this multifunctional project that aligns with the wavy city’s landscape, is designed by Zaha Hadid Architects.

The building will be situated on the 47,000 sq m land area with a gross floor area of 27,000 sq m. It compromises two theaters, 2050 and 520 seat respectively, an outdoor amphitheater with up to 7000 people capacity, in addition to many creative studios. The cost of this futuristic view on classic theater is estimated at 163 million dollars. The lines of the Grand Theater design tend to the sky while melting to the ground on the other edge opening up an inspiring view on the Bouregreg River.  The city’s development with the  flow of technology and fresh trends will only bring more tourists and recognition to Morocco while modernizing its landscape.
