The Shenzhen Opera House is the most important of the Ten Major Facilities in a New Era program launched by the City of Shenzhen. It is intended as a new cultural landmark and world-class art palace. The program includes an Opera Hall, Concert Hall, Operetta Hall, Multifunctional Theater, and support spaces, on a 43-acre (17.5-hectare) landfill peninsula along Shenzhen Bay.
Over the course of the competition, REX refined the original proposal with a second scheme to address the client’s and jury’s comments. Both are presented here in detail.
REX was awarded third prize in this international, limited competition.
