The ambitious designs created by the architectural firm, Zaha Hadid, for the Changsha Meixihu International Culture & Art Centre in China have been revealed and they are quite impressive. The three buildings, a Grand Theatre, a Contemporary Art Museum, and a Multipurpose Hall, will each offer various creative activities and different experiences. The facilities are intended to offer both indoor and outdoor exhibitions, with additional amenities such as bars and restaurants for visitors.
Theatre: Is designed to seat 1,800 guests. With this space, the London-based firm proposes to provide an architectural setting that functions as a host to “world-standard performances” fully equipped with the expected amenities of such an establishment; including bars, restaurants, and VIP hospitality.
Museum: The Museum is intended for art exhibitions both indoors and outdoors. It is meant to operate as an adaptive space that can accommodate a variety of roles, from commercial events and fashion shows to banquets and small plays.
