Guangzhou Opera House, China : Zaha Hadid Architects
Like pebbles in a stream smoothed by erosion, this new Chinese opera house building sits in perfect harmony with its riverside location. The building is at the heart of Guangzhou’s cultural development. Its unique twin-boulder design enhances the city by opening it to the Pearl River, unifying the adjacent cultural buildings with the towers of international finance in Guangzhou’s Zhujiang new town. The 1,800-seat auditorium of the building houses the very latest acoustic technology, and the smaller 400-seat multifunction hall is designed for performance art, opera and concerts in the round.

The proposal for the design of the Intercity is based on three starting points. The proposal is to build six hexagonal buildings (baukoerper) that would be sitting on four islands (insel). Four wider and two narrower buildings would be constructed in a way that follows the construction context and at the same time they allow the best environmental conditions within the area.
The four of the buildings around the central area would have business surfaces. Each typical floor of a business building can be separated into several business units.
