NCPA Western Cuisine / National Centre for the Performing Arts by Golucci Interior Architects


In 1999, French architect Paul Andreu completed his classic design of the National Centre for the performing arts. In 2007, the National Centre for the performing arts was officially performed. The shape of the National Grand Theater of China is novel and avant-garde. The central building is a semi ellipsoidal steel structure shell. Its surface is composed of 18398 titanium plates and 1226 ultra white transparent glass. Both kinds of materials are light and flexible, showing an aesthetic curve, creating a visual effect of the stage curtain slowly opening.

In 2019, the National Centre for the Performing Arts commissioned the Golucci design team to design the NCPA western cuisine. This is a very challenging project. In addition to creating memory points that belong to the restaurant in the theater with high recognition, we need to think about how to integrate new concepts perfectly in the original environment of the Grand Theater.
