The award-wining Yas Arena, the UAE’s first state-of-the-art multi-purpose entertainment arena in Abu Dhabi, has been announced by the international Architizer A+Awards as an Unbuilt Sports & Recreation category finalist.
Currently on site, the arena is designed to adapt from an intimate 500 seat theatre to an 18,000 capacity venue. The innovative and highly flexible facility will support a variety of events including sports, concerts, performances, conventions and community gatherings.
Pascall+Watson are collaborating with HOK and WSP to deliver this visionary project, which is part of the Yas Bay Resort. Developed by Miral Asset Management, the scheme is planned as a vibrant and compelling destination for both residents and tourists.
The Architizer A+Awards celebrate the world’s leading architecture demonstrating outstanding design, form, function and innovation. This year’s winners will be announced on Monday 30 July.
