Take a behind-the-scenes look at Concrete, the OMA-designed building located on Alserkal Avenue.
Concrete is an example of flexible, adaptive architecture. Hear the inside story behind how four warehouses on Alserkal Avenue were reimagined into a space with limitless configurations. Iyad Alsaka from the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), and lead partner on the Concrete project, explains how the first Rem Koolhaas-designed building in the UAE is at the crossroads of modular design and modern architecture.
Alsaka will take architecture and design enthusiasts through the building, highlighting how its interiors were designed to be adaptable, while ensuring its exterior allows for a blended indoor-outdoor experience. From its moving walls and high ceilings to its hidden doors and passages, Concrete is an architectural gem that has initiated a dialogue around architectural evolution in the UAE.

Concrete is a multi-disciplinary space conceptualised by Alserkal Avenue, and the first building in the UAE to be completed by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), founded by Rem Koolhaas. Located on Alserkal Avenue, Dubai, Concrete is an adaptable venue with the ability to metamorphose and bring creative visions to life, making it suitable for international, museum-grade exhibitions as well as events across art, design, fashion and the performing arts.
