The Grand Theatre of Rabat is a part of a national programme of cultural development initiated by King Mohammed VI, and is located on the Bouregreg River between the ancient twin cities of Rabat and Salè. The design takes its inspiration from the River, generating the landscape of the park that engulfs the amphitheatre and theatre. The fluid sculptural forms create a seamless spatial experience that flow into the main foyer, moulding the grand staircases.
The project includes an 1800-seat theatre, an open-air amphitheatre with a capacity of 7000 people, a secondary experimental performance/rehearsal spaces and an extraordinary restaurant for 350 people. The main auditorium has a different crystalline geometry inspired by traditional Moroccan muqarnas.
