Grand Theatre Rabat @ AKTII - Looking Backwards and Onwards
"Looking backwards and onwards! Great to see the structure of the GRAND THEATRE DE RABAT coming together. and standing up. Structure designed at AKTII, in collaboration with Zaha Hadid Architects and many consultants, including ARUP as acoustic and theatre specialists.
I am proud I contributed to lead the structural design through its hurdles, with an outstanding team. This project, beyond the building itself, is a bridge between many cultures. After more than 5 years of design from concept to construction information delivery, the best reward is to see the project step by step coming together on site, and forming part of the Bouregreg Valley. The complex nature of the program and the form demanded an advanced digital process for the structural design. It did involve more than 20 engineers and draughtsmen in London and a dedicated team locally in Rabat. What an experience!" Nicolas Sterling 2018
