Alhamra Art Center

Pakistan / Asia

Alhamra Art Center is on Mall Road, now called Sharhrah Quaid-e-Azam, and was opened in 1992.  It was designed by Nayyar Ali Dada.  He was asked to design a 1,000 seat auditorium, which was completed in 1979.  Offices and art galleries were added in 1984, a 450-seat theatre in 1985, and an octagonal facility for lectures and recitals in 1992.   These buildings surround semi-enclosed courtyards.   They were built in the Mughal empire style, from handmade red bricks.  The design won the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 1998.
