British designer Thomas Heatherwick‘s studio has revealed visuals of a performing arts centre planned for Hainan, China, that draws on the island’s volcanic landscape and Hainanese opera costumes.

Set to be built in the city of Haikou on the island province of Hainan, the Hainan Performing Arts Centre will form part of a large-scale master plan to create a new cultural area in the Jiangdong district.

The Hainan Performing Arts Centre was designed by Heatherwick Studio and will be built in Jiangdong

According to the studio, the design for the Hainan Performing Arts Centre will take cues from the volcanic landscape of the island of Hainan. The building will house three performance spaces, including an opera house, a concert hall and a theatre.

Visuals of the opera house show the building occupying a rectangular site, which is covered by a curving roof plane that peaks into a collection of three sculptural volcano-like cones at its centre. […]

Open-air spaces will be free and publically accessible
