Recently Henning Larsen Architects unveiled their project in Yuhang, China. It´s an opera with several more functions such as theatre, two museums, an art school and retail stores. The opera house is located in the middle of a lake in a new urban area, and the vision is to use the opera house as a focal point.
I like the ornament in the facade which reminds me a little of when I as a kid played with paper and a scissor to create patterns. It seems to have a beautiful location by the lake and the building seems to rise from the water and opens up in front of it. The spectacular facade also gives a nice effect in the interior with all the shadows it creates. It´s like a sculpture and I look forward to see more about the project and some more info about the chosen materials.
