Architect: Paul Andreu, Bordeaux

The National Grand Theatre in Peking was desi­gned by the French architect Paul Andreu and is only a stone's throw away from Tia­n­anmen Square. This building rests like a gigantic air bubble on the water of an arti­ficial lake. A homogenous skin of glass and tita­nium that allows light to flood into the inte­rior, nestles against the convex form of the culture island. Visi­tors gain access to the spacious open foyer via an underground entrance: the load-bea­ring structure of filigree steel tubes spans behind the dyna­mi­cally curving facade of the building. The typical wall/ceiling divi­sion is trans­formed into a comple­tely organic whole.
The National Theatre is remi­nis­cent of the tra­di­tional yin-yang motif and is one of the modern architectural attrac­tions of the city. It is a venue for national and inter­na­tional theatre, opera, music and dance per­formances.
