Opera house by Zaha Hadid in China

Designed by Zaha Hadid, built with HI-MACS®

Alongside the concert hall with seating for 1,800 people, the new 70,000 sqm building comprises a reception area with lobby and lounge, a second, smaller multifunctional hall, as well as offices and support premises. Unmistakeably, the opera house bears the signature of star architect Zaha Hadid: It has no right angles, the walls and ceilings slant, and the audience passageways are shaped so as to flow into each other. The dramatic effects of the interior design is spectacular. Recesses in the walls and lines of sight within the entrance area, and the way the building opens up are intended to play with the visitor’s perception of space.
