Even in this age of varied home entertainment and fast-paced mass media, immense creative energy is being directed towards new space for live performance. Profusely illustrated with photographs, computer renderings and architectural drawings, Performing Architecture explores fifty of today’s finest performance spaces, as well as recently refurbished, restored and transformed buildings. A brief introduction traces the post-war development of theatre and concert hall design, and sets out the circumstances today that have led to such a rich provision for performance. Buildings featured range from Frank Gehry’s landmark Disney Opera House in Los Angeles to the quieter Unicorn Theatre for Children in London; and from the Tenerife Opera House by Santiago Calatrava to the Guangzhou Opera House, China, by Zaha Hadid. A celebratory sty, this book showcases some of the most exhilarating buildings of our time.
