Zaha Hadid Architects has unveiled designs for the King Abdullah II House of Culture and Art in Amman, Jordan.

The scheme features a 1,600-seat concert theatre, a 400-seat theatre, an educational centre, rehearsal rooms and galleries.

The scheme’s design has been inspired by the city of Petra and features public spaces and a plaza.

The centre will be Jordan’s main venue for theatre, music and dance performance and education, bringing together all members of the community.

The practice won a competition to design the project in 2008, beating Snøhetta, Atelier Christian de Portzamparc, Delugan Meissl, Henning Larsens Tegnestue and Kerry Hill Architects.

Construction work is scheduled to begin in 2012.
