‘Rabat Grand Theatre’ by Zaha Hadid Architects in Rabat, Morocco

Zaha Hadid Architects have signed an agreement to design a new multi-purpose theatre in Morocco with the Bouregreg Valley development agency. With a dedicated land area of 47,000 m2 and a gross floor area of 27,000 m2, the ‘Rabat Grand Theatre’ will be equipped with a number of cultural facilities, including a 2,050-seat theatre, a smaller 520-seat theatre, creative studios and an outdoor amphitheatre with a capacity to hold up to 7,000 people. The cost of the project is estimated at around 163 million USD.

The site for the projects is the geographic centre between the twin cities of Rabat and Salè; the historic Kasbag Oudayas to the northwest, the ancient city of Salè and airport to the north-east, Chellah and the royal palace to the south-west and the proposed sequence III of Amwaj development to the east.

The design takes off from the adjacent bouregreg river: in a similar dynamic manner, the landscape of the park is generated in a single gesture to engulf the amphitheatre. The ground extends to the sky, resulting in a sculpted envelope over the two auditoria and arches back down to the ground level to melt into the landscape.

The form is a seamless structure, creating a spatial experience that directs the visitors intuitively through the main foyer and programs.
