Guangzhou Opera House by Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid’s Guangzhou Opera House is a stunning reaffirmation of the star architect’s ethereal exploration of buildings as landscape. A space so evocative considers form and structure as sensuous sculpture for urban meandering to lose oneself to a building in a denser urban jungle. Zaha, appraised the world over for aesthetics comparative to sleek sports cars and amorphous forms (at face value) – has created possibly her finest building yet, striking a sophisticated balance between theatricality and subtlety. Zaha’s latest work may very well be to China what Jørn Utzon’s Sydney Opera House is to Australia, an exclamation point to define a city struck with an avant-garde twist of thunder.
