Go Zaha!

Zaha Hadid has created a dune inspired Opera house and cultural center for an island off Dubai. The Buildings will be located off the mainland of the Seven Pearls district of Dubai; it will include an Opera house, playhouse, art gallery, performing arts school and a hotel. The facilities will be state of the art in order to host world class exhibitions, with the opera house seating 2500 and the playhouse to seat 800. The art gallery is anticipated to be compatible to the size of the Guggenheim museum in New York, along with a 6 star hotel which will be connected to the mainland via a road. The two peaks indicate the location of the opera house and the playhouse. The auditoria are found in the flowing shapes that seem to rise for the underside from the main shell.
