New urban centre bringing together the National Archives, the National Library and Oman National Theatre

Architecture-Studio as Architects

This new urban centre brings together the the Omani National Theatre, the National Archives and the National Library. The complex emerges in a unique landscape, between the sea and the mountains, as an oasis made up of palms and mineral columns. The cultural centre is covered by a canopy, which is bent at its western side by the National Theatre.This mashrabiya canopy that filters sun is a reference to Omani architecture; in the same way, a trickle crosses covered gardens in reference to aflaj.
