The building should become an important monument not only of the city but of the entire country. It should be unique for its original, dynamic and innovative design and near-by infrastructure.

With a surface of 27000 square meters, the Rabat`s Grand Theatre is designed to become a luxurious cultural crossroad. It could host 2050 visitors in the big hall and 520 in the small hall. The outside amphitheatre has a capacity of 7000 people. Planned expenses on this project are quite big, estimated 100 million pounds or 160 million euro.

I am surprised again for the original, dynamic and innovative design of the project named “Grand Opera” in Morocco in the city of Rabat as a luxurious cultural crossroad with accomodating such a huge number of people together respecting a smooth functional approach with this dynamic form.
    Many many thanks to Madam Zaha Hadid for inspiring us with such a nice project.

  • Just to say honestly that its a marvelous project and many many respect to Madam Zaha Hadid for such a nice and dynamic project.

  • of course it is dinamic,original,inovative…but ‘what’ is it?’Opera hous’ or UFO???

  • Hampir mustahil, saya ingin sekali mengatakan bahwa’ ARSITEKTUR bukan ilmu tapi adalah bakat.


  • this is not good architecture, the building is treated as a sculpture, without considiration to its environment or the scale of integration. it is an object that can be implemented anywhere. it deals with the relationship Avenue in the same way that the rappoet with the river. architecture is not car or space shuttles design. Ms. Hadid has done better
