Nanhai Art Center, China

MAD Architects unveiled the design for a new cultural hub, the Nanhai Art Center, which will span over 59,000 sqm. Construction is set to begin in 2024 and is expected to be completed in 2029. The design drew inspiration from the culture of Nanhai. MAD Architects infused the design with elements that capture the spirit of Southern Guangdong – friendly, humble, inward-looking yet open and tolerant.





The design integrates with the surrounding landscape, resembling a continuous water ripple with three main buildings emerging from under a floating sun canopy. The large overhangs of traditional southern Guangdong architecture and the gray space that provides shade, rain, and ventilation are all sources of inspiration for the art center. The design is centered around its encompassing bodies of water, creating a visual corridor that connects the three venues.





The Grand Theater brings together immersive spaces including a 1,500-seat main theatre and a 600-seat multi-purpose hall — both designed to accommodate the needs of various dynamic performing arts, conferences, and experiences. The upcoming National Museum hosts an array of comprehensive exhibits, inviting exploration, education, and discovery to help strengthen the local and global community, while the Sports Center includes leisure, recreation, and fitness amenities including swimming pools, basketball, and badminton courts.
