inception—of—a

norm defying
vision.

The—Artery is a space for art. Designed from the ground up to evoke pure artistic ability and stunning aesthetics, the building will showcase content created by the world’s finest artists, classical and contemporary.

The—Artery is not just an exhibition hall for works of art, but is art in itself, a fluid, living, changing space, set in the heart of Abu Dhabi’s Makers District.

the—new—heart—

of Abu Dhabi.

As the new heart of Abu Dhabi, Makers District is strategically positioned between the prestigious Saadiyat Island—the hub of Emirati heritage and culture, and Reem Island—the scenic waterfront development. This creates a dynamic and multi-layered experience which draws from its surrounding, both geographically and culturally.

Makers District is an area, which offers contemporary living in a key cultural position with a waterfront connection. It promotes Arab culture and tradition; it is a place where education and inspiration is cultivated, it is a place where creativity lives.

made for people.

Scientifically, an artery is a vessel through which the heart injects life to the rest of the body. Similarly, The—Artery gives life to the art world created within.

The allegory continues into every dimension; like the continuously regenerating facets of the physical body. The—Artery is intended to continuously evolve and expand; its rhythm always in sync with the cultural vogue and its pulse beating with the art of the times.

creating—a—one—of—a—kind

challenge.

From the very beginning, IMKAN believed that to establish a world-class makers’ space, in the heart of the Emirates, would require a truly global approach.

To realise its vision, IMKAN designed a competition like no other, bringing the best architectural firms from all over the world to collaborate with a single mission: create the space of the future.

the—architecture—

coming to life.

Following the competition, IMKAN has engaged all of the four Architects to collaborate on the design of the first phase of the Makers District to create a place that will become the new heart of Abu Dhabi.

IMKAN’s vision of The—Artery was realized by BIG, whose design turned the building inside out with a façade that will pull passers-by in, and an ingenious double helix that will provide both integration and separation between the building’s flexible and hybrid use as a parking garage, Makers space and exhibition venue. The building will be alive, a ‘beating heart’, a true manifestation of The—Artery’s ‘creative pulse’.
