Pindon Performing Art Centre 2 (Semi-Transparent) -
Pindon City, Burma

This landmark development is located in the centre of Pingdon city, and includes a striking 2500-seat opera house. The new theatre resembles Chinese philosophy of TaiChi, emphasizing a soft interior and semi-transparent exterior. The erosion that forms the great cavity inside the building is intended to be a landmark, announcing the arrival to the town from the city centre. This feature articulates the volume in a succession of open spaces for performing and places of aggregation.
