Qingdao Grand Theater

 Back to Projects list
Location
266000 Qingdao
Year
2010

Located in the Laoshan district of Qingdao the Grand Theater is placed along a newly created park, which stretches from the sea to the foot of the Laoshan Mountains. In view of this extraordinary location it is highly attractive to implement the genius loci into architectural appearance. Like a mountain landscape the building is growing from the ground, and a roof that is similar to a light and floating cloud surrounds this "architectural landscape".
