Qinghai Arts Center

The arts center is composed of a 1200-seat middle-sized theater, an 800-seat concert hall. On a massive podium, two elliptical volumes anchor the complex at north and south ends. Bending inward, the sweeping curtain wall invites citizens to the concourse and keeps the views to the urban landscape belt from any interruptions. The spirals of the massive walls, which wrap the ellipse volumes and the podium, indicate the soaring snow mountains of Qinghai.
