The Grand Theatre is part of a national programme of cultural development initiated by King Mohammed VI, located on the Bouregreg River between the ancient twin cities of Rabat and Salé. The design takes its energy 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. This fluidity provides an intuitive visual and physical guide for visitors.
The €120m project includes an 1800-seat theatre, an open-air amphitheatre with a capacity of 7,000 people, a second experimental performance / rehearsal spaces and an extraordinary restaurant for 350 people. The main auditorium has a different crystalline geometry inspired by traditional Moroccan muqarnas.
