Harbin Opera House – a futuristic architectural landmark in China
With its fluid form and swaying winding lines, the new opera Harbin Opera House in China merges harmoniously into the natural landscape. This outstanding architectural creation is the new home for the arts and culture in the Chinese city of Harbin designed by the architectural bureau “MAD Architects”.
Harbin Opera House completely embodies the architectural vision and philosophy of “MAD Architects” for futuristic, organic and technological contemporary designs. The new building will bring together the music and theater under one roof and will be a new and modern cultural refuge for the residents. Covering an area of 80000 square meters and capacity for 2,000 visitors, “Harbin Opera House” is an astonishing architectural masterpiece.
The extraordinary architectural team of “MAD Architects” was inspired by the history of the rural town, its untamed wilderness and harsh climatic conditions. Harbin is a city known for extreme and strong winds that shape its landscape with attractive sculptural contours. These forces of the nature are reflected in the sculpted architectural expression of the building that seamlessly and unobtrusively blends in the natural context.
