Plans have been announced for Rem Koolhaas’ Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) to build its first project in the UAE, atAlserkal Avenue in Dubai. An architect-designed cluster of warehouses, Alserkal Avenue is the region’s foremost arts quarter, hosting Dubai Art Week this week. OMA will transform four warehouses at the Avenue into a multi-functional event and project space, scheduled to open in fall 2016. “We selected OMA to design our new project space because they share our commitment to bold ideas and experimentation,” said Abdelmonem Bin EisaAlserkal, founder of Alserkal Avenue. “Their design provides us with a new ‘home’ for arts and culture programming, and enables us to take even greater risks as we look towards the future.”
