Harbin Opera House

The town of Harbin is known as “the pearl on the swan’s neck.” The swan thus became the inspiration for the sinuous shapes that permeate the Opera House’s design by Lemay. The winner of a design competition and intended as a destination in this snowy landscape, the Harbin Opera House features an organic shape and large windows that evoke the warmth and elegance of its host town.
