Sharjah’s Rain Room - An Experience to Explore

Can you ever imagine experiencing rain, but without getting wet?

The Rain Room, presented by Sharjah Art Foundation, is a first of its kind project, permanently sited at Al Majarrah, Sharjah.

The Rain Room was opened in May 2018 in Sharjah, becoming part of the Sharjah Art Foundation Collection. It was designed by Sharjah Art Foundation and the UAE-based SpaceContinuum Design Studio along with collaborating with the Shape Architecture Practice + Research in Sharjah.

Technology has backed the concept of the Rain Room. Rain is prevented from falling directly above any detected person. This is enabled by creating a responsive environment that follows visitors as they walk through the darkened underground space. 

2,500 litres of self-cleaning recycled water is installed and controlled through an effective system of 3D tracking cameras.
