Guangzhou Opera House

Guangzhou Opera House is a newly constructed Chinese opera house in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, People’s Republic of China.

The structure was designed by Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid; its freestanding concrete auditorium set within an audacious exposed granite and glass-clad steel frame took over five years to build, and was praised upon opening by architectural critic Jonathan Glancey in The Guardian, who called it “at once highly theatrical and insistently subtle.” The dramatic structure was the source of inspiration behind fashion designer Vivienne Tam’s fall ’10 collection.
