Zhuhai Opera House / SPF architects

SPF Architects, based in Culver City, California, have created an design for the Zhuhai Opera House in , .  Learning from the traditional principles of the region,  the opera house’s form gives the appearance of stacked pebbles.  Such an idea was conceived as a way to create a visual balance based on the Chinese principle from the five element theory.   The opera house has three stacked levels that provide varying programmatic activities, such as a 1500 seat auditorium, large plaza gathering space, rehearsal hall, restaurants and other public amenities.  A forest behind the structure gives the impression of growth and sustainability.
