Updated: 2022-03-30

Glass curtain wall installation and interior decoration are currently underway at the Jinwan Aviation New Town Civic Arts Center, which is set to open in early 2023.

Located in the heart of Aviation New Town Central Lake off Jinfan Avenue, the 66,700-sq-m (16-acre) center applies a gem-like design inspired by flocks of birds and drifting sails created by Zaha Hadid Architects, a British firm that has produced numerous outstanding works like the Guangzhou Opera House and Beijing Daxing International Airport.

Construction on the curtain walls is expected to finish in September after five years of work. Each plate of the structure needs to go through 3D modeling and customized manufacturing at the factory for further on-site installation due to the center's complicated architectural style, according to He Zan of project developer Zhuhai Huajin Development & Construction.

A six-story theater with 1,200 seats is the core of the center, which will be able to hold large-scale stage performances, such as operas, dance shows, and dramas presented by domestic and overseas groups. A 500-seat multi-functional hall is designed as a black box theater to host shows that break the limits of traditional theaters, bringing audiences closer to art. 

Two other halls for science popularization and art are also being built. The four zones will be connected by a main square and overhead corridors.

Upon completion, the center will be the first international, modern, and professional theater in Zhuhai's west wing. It will form a brand-new cultural and art landmark along with the Zhuhai Opera House and Huafa & CPAA Grand Theater.

Of note, the fountain performance at the center's south lake is currently suspended due to renovation of the central lake until the end of June.
