Located on an
artificial peninsula on the shore of the Taihu Lake in China and offers a
placement similar to the Sydney Opera House is the Wuxi Grand Theatre which is designed by PES- architects.
The height of the building reaches 50 meters and the entire design is original enough to be comparable to a unique gigantic sculpture. There are eight roof wings spreading like petals over the facades to offer shading and also collect the rain water. These petals (or butterfly wings) contain LED lights to give the building different colors for each performance and thus offer the entire place a character similar to the play in progress.
The edifice proves to be an example of originality and modern architecture that is functional and also truly beautiful.
