Located in the heart of Safa Park, near the entrance of Gate 5, The Archive was formerly an old facilities building built in 1975. The multidivisional group Cultural Engineering renovated the building and converted it to create a culturally based program for the community. The Archive supports a dialogue between art literature and its audience further enhancing the cultural landscape of the city, creating a place for families, enthusiasts, patrons and visitors. The Archive will present an annual program of activities that revolve around the arts, architecture and literature as well as public art initiatives that will develop direct audience participation.
