Jeddah - Yasmine El Tohamy - Maraya Concert Hall: The ‘mirrored wonder’ of Saudi Arabia’s AlUla creates Guinness World Record
RIYADH: The magnificent mirrored Maraya Concert Hall in AlUla has astonished everyone who sees it — a list that now includes assessors from Guinness World Records.
The cube-shaped structure, covered in 9,740 square meters of mirrors that reflect the breathtaking landscape around it, has set a record for the largest mirrored building in the world.
The building and its extraordinary facade were unveiled at a special ceremony staged by the Royal Commission for AlUla during the second season of the Winter at Tantora festival. The 500-seat venue has since hosted leading international artists, including Egyptian musician Omar Khairat and Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli.
“AlUla is a cultural heritage to the world, and this step comes in fulfillment of AlUla’s vision, to create a regional and global cultural center,” said commission chief executive Amr Al-Madani
“We have developed Maraya Concert Hall as a hub for world events, concerts, celebrations, gatherings, and business conventions. The mirrored hall is a global platform where nature, culture, and human heritage coexist in harmony.
“We are proud to celebrate the opening of Maraya Concert Hall, and we thank our partners, experts, engineers, and architects, who worked day and night to create this astounding monument in the heart of the marvelous desert environment of AlUla.”
Florian Boje of designers Gio Forma said: “This unique edifice makes us think about the unique landscape of the geological saga, the radical abstraction of the enchanting environment of AlUla, and the uncommon incursions for man in the natural landscape.
“The reflections give an overwhelming balance and a deep sense of the connection of human heritage with nature.”
