Guangzhou Opera House, Zaha Hadid

" The Guanggzhou Opera House with its tantalizing contours will resonate with the high notes of Chinese opera, in harmony with the tenor of its Western brother. It will stand alongside its global family as a testament to state-of-the-art architect, and as a lasting monument to the new millennium. Its unique twin boulder design will enhance urban function with open access to the riverside and dock areas, and at the same time will create a new dialogue with the emerging new town. It is from here that we hope to see the storey of Guangzhou continue its evolutionary journey."
