The Wuxi Grand Theatre looks like it is going to take flight at any moment. The roof has a winged effect gives the structure a sculpturally striking aesthetic that will vastly improve the waterfront peninsula of Wu-Li Lake, which can be found south of Wuxi centre city in Jiangsu, China. Even the architects write, that it gives "the impression of a butterfly descending onto the shore." A cultural hub, it will serve many functions, although mainly providing space for a classical and Chinese opera, ballet and symphony orchestral.

Designed by PES-Architects, the Wuxi Grand Theatre was given its form so that it too could be regarded as a work of art and not just a center for the arts. It also offers stunning views of the surrounding lake.
