Aedas' designs for a spectacular new performance venue in the UAE.
"Surrounded by the desert sands and occupying its own island in the middle of a nature reserve, APV is organically tied to both to its context and through its use. Connected via bridges for vehicles and trains, approachable by boats, the entrances all cut into the landscape to open into water filled cavity. The walls, which contain the water, become the main entry foyer to the complex and a museum / exhibition center. "
