#SundayStaircase : Guangzhou Opera House. Fantastic photo by @virgilebertrand_hk_photo.
“Sometimes, just sometimes, architecture makes you want to burst out into song. The new Guangzhou Opera House is one of the most remarkable buildings not just in China, but the whole world. A truly radical design that shapes and defines a new stretch of the city and boasts inspiring and unexpected public spaces... a virtuoso performance. The structural ebb and flow of this charismatic opera house are the end result of a long artistic adventure. A marriage of brilliant avant-garde architecture and true populism.” via @Guardian.
Since opening in 2011, Guangzhou Opera House has welcomed more than 3 million visitors to its performances.

The BFI’s new entrance, designed by the studio has opened. The project announces a new identity and entrance to BFI Southbank with a grand canopy which cantilevers east and west from beneath Waterloo Bridge. Maintaining the ‘caves’ of the cinemas beneath the bridge, this new pavilion becomes a landmark visible from both banks of the river and offers a generous new entrance from all sides.
