Was reading this article in the NY Times about Zaha Hadid's stunning new Guangzhou Opera House in China. It's certainly operatic, which is appropriate. The exterior is supposed to suggest pebbles in a stream. I love the contrast of the warm coppers and golds in the auditorium with the harder, colder look of the lobbies and exterior. Show us some of your favorite buildings; new or historic. And, if you would, please tell us the names of the buildings and the architects. Let us know what you like about the buildings if you care to.
Here's the aforementioned Guangzhou Opera House designed by Zaha Hadid.
