This 50,000m² complex consists of a 1,500-seat Grand Theatre, an 800-seat Multiform Theatre and an 800-seat Proscenium Playhouse. The design is inspired by a traditional Chinese wood block puzzle.
The three auditoria plug into a compact central cube that contains backstage areas, foyers, front-of-house and support facilities. This enables the theatres to be used independently or in combination with each other.
The main seating areas cantilever outside the central cube, supported by props. A public path inside the cube exposes parts of the backstage areas that would be hidden in typical theatres.
1500seat Grand Theatre
Upon opening the centre will facilitate the development of local performing arts groups and add to Taipei’s image as an international cultural hub.
