Awesome Architecture: Guangzhou Opera House

We think the architecture on the just-opened Guangzhou Opera House in Guangzhou, China is so cool! Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the Opera House sits on the Pearl River and was meant to resemble two pebbles sitting on the bank. Furthermore, the interior was also inspired by the natural tendencies of rivers.

The interior is meant to reflect the results of erosion on rivers, as ceilings and walls feature foldlines that would occur naturally. The fold lines also allow light into the building and improve air circulation.

The Opera House seats 1,800 and also has a 400-person multi-functional hall and multiple rehearsal rooms. We would love to see a show in this theatre just to take a walk around! An extra plus—the building of the Opera House has improved commerce and cultural interest in the Guangzhou area; the House’s location harmonizes the formerly enclosed cultural center to the more modern, international financial district of Zhujiang.
