The capital of the south central Chinese province of hunan is in the midst of incredible population growth and rapid urban development. At the center of a stimulus worth billion USD is the idyllic Meixihu Lake, now primed for an ambitious set of cultural projects. The central plaza emphasizes the pedestrian urban experience by helping to create incidental meeting areas and generating cultural capital in form of a sculpture garden and expansive exhibition space. Outward views are afforded by ribbons of glazing and balconies that serve the dual purpose of admitting daylight into the galleries. The multipurpose hall is a pointedly variable space, with public access to retail areas and restaurants nestled in a sunken courtyard. The focal point of the plan comes by way of the grand theater, slated to be the largest performance venue in the city with an seat capacity. The three major programs,while discrete buildings, are linked by sinuous passageways, curved white planes and an architecture of baroque intonations.
The central plaza courtyard is generated by the relative position of these separate buildings and offers a strong urban experience where the flow of all pedestrian routes intersect. These routes stretches outwards to connect with neighbouring streets and give views across Meixi lake with access towards Festival Island. This dynamic composition further establishes a powerful relationship with its surroundings. With a capacity of seats, it is the largest theatre in this city with a rich history and tradition in the performing arts. The external plaza on Meixi Lake Road allows for outdoor sculptures, exhibitions and events. The Small Theatre Multipurpose Hall is characterized by its flexibility.
Zaha Hadid Architects ZHA have unveiled an ambitious cultural mega center, which began to take shape in October after the project broke ground in the heart of Changsha , China. The central plaza is generated by the relative position of these separate buildings and offers a strong urban experience whereby the flow of pedestrian visitors that come from all sides of the site intersect and meet. In parallel it also stretches outwards to the neighboring streets with unfettered and phenomenal views across Meixi lake with access towards Festival Island. It is the largest performance venue in the city with a total capacity of seats. Designed to host world-standard performances the building contains will contain all the necessary front of house functions, such as lobbies, cloakrooms, bars, restaurants, and VIP hospitality, as well as the required ancillary functions, such as administration, rehearsal rooms, backstage logistics, dressing and make-up rooms, and wardrobe. An external plaza which faces Meixi Lake Road allows for outdoor sculptures, exhibitions and events to be extended to an expansive outdoor space. The Small Theatre Multipurpose Hall is characterized by its flexibility.

Due for completion this year, the ,square-metre cultural complex is located beside Meixi Lake in Changsha, the capital of the Hunan province. The photos reveal that the exterior of each building in the Changsha Meixihu International Culture and Art Centre has been completed, featuring the studio's signature white, fluid facades, punctured by curving panes of glass. They sit atop a giant, stepped plaza, forming pathways between them that Zaha Hadid Architects has aligned with routes to the surrounding area. The complex's centrepiece is The Grand Theatre, which will be the "largest performance venue in the city" and hold performances for up to 1, people. It will be complete with "all the necessary front of house functions", such as lobbies, cloakrooms, bars, restaurants, and VIP hospitality, as well as the rehearsal rooms and backstage facilities.
