Beijing National Opera

Architect: Paul Andreu, ADP Paris

Size/Scope of Project: 58,000 ft²
As in other visionary projects involving woven metal mesh in architecture, the aesthetic properties of the material were the initial reason for its choice. The transparent, suspended partitions, totaling over 54,000 square feet, act as a fireproof façade that reduces drafts and noise while allowing optimal air circulation in an open, yet protective way.
