Masrah Al Qasba Theater – Magma Architecture

0
82

The transformation of the Masrah Al Qasba Theater in Sharjah is the Very first project to be carried out by magma architecture in the United Arab Emirates. Guests to the 300 seat auditorium find themselves covered in a sculpture undulating area evoking memories of the scenery of Sharjah. Meticulously disguised lighting elements shining through stretchable fabric surfaces improve the spatial experience of constant enclosure. The Masrah Al Qasba Theater is shortlisted for the 2012 LEAF Awards.
