The Xiqu (Opera) Centre in Hong Kong is part of a larger master plan to develop the area of the West Kowloon cultural district.

The Xiqu Centre is scheduled to open in 2016.

From Bing Thom Architects:

The Xiqu Centre will be the first of 17 arts and cultural venues to be opened within the new Cultural District for Hong Kong. Over 50 architectural teams participated in the shortlisting with 5 firms selected to partake in the competition. The win holds a special place for Bing Thom who was born in Hong Kong, “The project is a true homecoming for me – my first building in my birthplace. It is an honour to return to design a home for this most authentic Chinese performing art, the first building for the West Kowloon Cultural District.”
