Post Time: 03/08/2018


The Yiwu Grand Theater project covers 94.78 million m2, with a construction area of about 47,000 m2, and includes 800 underground parking garages, two halls with 1600 seats and 1200 seats, a national conference room with 2000 seats, a multifunctional room, and several small meeting rooms.

On June 2, the review meeting of Yiwu Grand Theater project was held at Yiwu Yourworld International Conference Center. The expert team, with one academician, one international architectural expert, and five experts in the fields of architecture, structure, acoustics, and planning, reviewed the design proposals made by Christian De Portzamparc Design Company of France, GMP International GmbH Company of Germany, the Shanghai branch of Arata Isozaki & Associates of Japan, and the Shanghai branch of Kalarch Design Group of the US and MAD Architects of China. Of these, three became the final candidates: Christian De Portzamparc Design, MAD Architects, and GMP International. Afterwards, according to the Urban and Rural Planning Law and other related regulations, Yiwu’s relevant departments publicly displayed the three successful design proposals to the public and welcomed their opinions.

According to the Department of Culture of Yiwu, the publicity period of the three proposals for designing Yiwu Grand Theater has ended, and relevant departments have tallied the results of the online voting. MAD Architects saw the most popularity, with over 30,000 votes; GMP International placed second with 20,000 votes, and Christian De Portzamparc Design received over 9,000 votes. The result of online voting is only one part of the results; voting by experts and heads of relevant departments will be conducted later. Afterwards, all the votes will be submitted to the Standing Committee of the Yiwu Municipal Party Committee to decide the final result. Staff from the Department of Culture of Yiwu said that the Yiwu Grand Theater project is an extensive project, with nearly 2 billion RMB in investments, so the design should be decided carefully. The final results will be published soon. (By Wang Zhijian, translated by Jiao Tingting, edited by Kendra Fiddler)
