The Largest Cultural Building in China (2 pics)

Zaha Hadid Architects recently unveiled their design for the largest cultural building in China. Located in Sichuan Province, the Chengdu Contemporary Art Centre is a visually striking new landmark that will act as a gateway to the city.

The Chengdu Contemporary Art Centre will provide the city with an unprecedented collection of world-class arts, performance, leisure, and congress venues. The modern structure will accommodate exhibition, conference, and learning spaces, as well as three auditoriums, an art museum, bars, restaurants, and shops. The largest of the three halls, a multifunctional theatre, seats up to 2,000 people.

The undulating building geometry suggests a rolling landscape, inspired by the topography of Sichuan Province. Its aerodynamic Yin-Yang shape evokes traditional Chinese symbols.
