Ordos Concert Hall in Inner Mongolia, China by Cannon Design

A world-class concert hall designed for the Kaokaoshina New District – an emerging art and cultural hub in Ordos City, in southwestern Inner Mongolia – is equipped to attract renowned performers from around the globe. Located at the intersection of two of the city’s major arteries, the concert hall is both integral to the art and culture of the district and an iconic gateway to the city itself.
The concert hall’s design is based on the movements of the Long Sleeve Dance, a traditional Chinese dance popular among both royalty and civilians during the Tang Dynasty. The undulating curves of three circular drums, housing a 1,200-seat main concert hall, a 335-seat performance theater, and a 100-seat experimental black box theater, recall the dance’s steps and the looping movement of the “long sleeves.” Circulation spaces weave between the theaters like the sleeves, with a series of nodes that include lounges, refreshment areas, and service functions.
