Opera House Downtown Dubai
The Opera House Downtown Dubai sits at the center of Emaar’s new flagship development in Downtown Dubai and has been billed as UAE’s newest arts and cultural nerve-center. This new district aims to further strengthen UAE’s emerging role as the cultural hub of the region, and builds on Dubai’s current repertoire of over 50 art galleries and globally acclaimed art showcases. The design encompasses a fore-court and park-like island that connects to the site. The Park Island is Downtown Dubai’s largest green space which EDSA has re-designed to accommodate outdoor shows and performances as well as reconnecting the community with nature. EDSA’s design vernacular of the site includes three major areas - the plaza, the opera house, and the park island inviting residents and visitors to a single location that provides and outdoor venue for a network of activity, public life and celebration.
EDSA won a design competition for the project and is currently providing landscape architectural services.
