Ennead Architects designs Shenzhen’s International Performance Center

The huge golden volumes refer to water’s organic shapes, in dialogue with seasons and light.

After an international competition, Ennead Architects has been chosen to design the new International Performance Center in Shenzhen (China), one of the world’s leading technology capitals.

Located in the Futian District, the building – dubbed “The People’s Performing Arts Center” – will stand as part of a larger masterplan. Composed of two golden volumes, the project has the purpose to represent the duality of Shenzhen, between tradition and future. The organic forms resemble the waters’ movement in the nearby bay and the facades create a dynamic layer that changes with the time of day and season.

The Performing Arts Center will include a theater, a concert hall, various practice rooms, rehearsal spaces, along with a variety of public amenities including shops a restaurant and an exhibition space.
