Arada recently revealed a new iconic performing art centre in Sharjah called II Teatro at Aljada. This was designed by a Japanese architect Tadao Ando. The beautiful performing arts centre is expected to play a prominent role in the largest lifestyle community of Aljada in Sharjah. Not to mention, the master developer behind this has also revealed the design of the striking structure.
II Teatro At Aljada To Open In 2027
Spread over an area of a whopping, 260,000 ft.², II Teatro at Aljada is expected to open in 2027. Its surrounding plaza is also expected to host a wide range of performances and shows.

Incorporating a gallery and boutique restaurant, this auditorium is certainly a full-fledged cultural complex.
As mentioned previously, the brilliant structure has been designed by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando, who is known for his trademark architectural simplicity. Coming to the design of this striking structure, it comprises a pure, cylindrical, concrete mass, and has a multi-layer cultural plaza.

As a result, the latter forms a strong connection between its interior and exterior.
