OMA has landed a commission to transform four warehouses on Dubai´s Alserkal Avenue into a new multi-purpose venue. This will be OMA´s first project in the United Arab Emirates and it will connect local architects and artists. The flexible space will feature four 8.10-metre moveable walls, allowing for a number of spatial configurations to host public events, art exhibitions, performances and conferences. Full-height transparent sliding doors will mark the entrance, while the existing exterior shell will be wrapped in a customised concrete spray. The new venue is expected to open in Fall 2016.
