The Taichung Metropolitan Opera House Has a Rolling Look

The Taichung Metropolitan Opera House in Japan is underway, and the facade is filled with an overall curved look. Moreover according to DesignBoom, "the envelope’s continuous surfaces are made from a sprayable type of concrete used for tunnel work."

As a result the concrete sections are intertwined seamlessly with large glass windows, ensuring that the inside receives enough natural light for people during the day. This surface also catches rainwater which is then recycled and helps to control the overall temperature of the place. As such the building is built with sustainability in mind.

The theater is at the very center of the structure, so that people are guided towards the pride and joy of the building. The aim is to have the building done by 2015, so that the public can enjoy everything it has to offer. Photo Credits: designboom,
