Henan Art Center

The proposed image for the Henan Art Center is that of a curvilinear and dynamic structure, that conveys to the outside the cultural, artistic, musical and theatrical activities of the inside halls.The Art Center has been designed with an asymmetric configuration on a symmetrical scheme with it axis perpendicular to the Central Lake shore. This landmark guarantees that Zhengzhou will have a special personality as an Art and Music Hall Center. The curved sculptural volumes will be immediately recognized in the urban design composition of the Central Business District. Unlike all other buildings in a city, an art center has to express the spiritual character of its activity.
