The Mecanoo scheme incorporates five state-of-the-art performance spaces under a single roof which, at 35 acres (141,000 square meters), stands as the world?s largest performing arts center under one roof.Set across a 116-acre (470,000-square-meter) subtropical park in the southern Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung, the scheme will occupy a former military training base, symbolizing the city?s transition from a major international harbor into a rich, diverse, cultural hub, connecting local and international artistic talent.

When open, the scheme will host performances by the world?s top artists, including the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, in a variety of performance spaces. A 2,260-seat Opera House with a ?proscenium? arch design will be equipped with the latest stage technology. A 2,000-seat Concert Hall in ?vineyard style,? with seats surrounding the performance stage at all sides, will feature a 9,085-pipe organ, the largest ever built in Asia.The scheme is also complete with smaller performance spaces, comprising a flexible 1000-1200 seat Playhouse, 470-seat Recital Hall. Connecting the building with the surrounding park, an outdoor performance space will host audiences of up to 20,000 people. A post shared by ???Kaohsiung ??
