Dubai opera house by zaha hadid

zaha hadid and patrik schumacher have designed a new opera house / cultural centre to be built in dubai.

'the only opera house in the entire middle east', dubai opera house is set on its own creek in the seven pearls district of the architecture hotbed that is dubai. the landmark will encompass an auditorium with room for 2,500 people, a 5000m2 art gallery, an 800-seat playhouse, a performing arts school and a hotel.

the form of the building is based on that of sand dunes and the structure appears to 'rise from the surface'.
all of the mentioned facilities are housed within the single structure which will be linked to the mainland by
road and monorail. a completion date for the project which was started in 2006 has yet to be announced.
