Commenters praise "honest and dystopian depiction" of Guangzhou Show Theatre



In this week's comments update, readers are debating visuals of the Guangzhou Show Theatre in China and sharing their thoughts on other top stories.
Steven Chilton Architects has revealed rendered images of the Guangzhou Show Theatre, which is currently under construction in southern China.
The theatre will feature a facade directly informed by the city's history as a key part of the Silk Road trading route as well as a 2,000-seat auditorium.
"It is truly troubling on many levels"
But commenters aren't convinced. "There are already many germane comments about the juxtaposition between this project and the rendered immediate context," said Spszut. "It is truly troubling on many levels."
Stutelf agreed, asking: "Why has the visualiser placed a person with trousers made from carrier bags outside the entrance of a 2,000 seat theatre" Is it to amplify the 'dynamism and joy'"" Miles Teg continued: "This is a beauty that is for sure. But the photo with the garbage pile summarises its relation to its surroundings better than any critic could."
"Love the honest and somewhat dystopian depictions of the theatre," said Martin Ljungman, on the other hand. "Something else instead of all the sunny and happy architecture renderings, with young and healthy families enjoying the surroundings. Big thumbs up!"
Are the images worrying or accurate" Join the discussion ?
