New Grand Opera in Beijing

Today is the inauguration of the Beijing National Theater designed by French architect Paul Andreu, located in the heart of the city (near Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City). This new complex includes a concert hall (2000 seats), a theater (1100 seats) and an Opera House (2400 seats), all under an oval-shaped steel structure covered with titanium.

A gallery of computer images from the project can be found inside the Paul Andreu's website; great photographs here.
