Steven Chilton Architects (SCA) have revealed their design for the Wuxi Show Theatre in Wuxi, China.

The firm, which has been shortlisted for this year’s World Architecture Festival Future Project Award, were inspired by the largest bamboo forest in China: the Sea of Bamboo Park in Yixing.

The 2,000-person capacity theatre uses tightly packed white columns and a canopy made from gold anodised aluminium louvers to simulate the appearance of dense undergrowth.

According to SCA, at night the "building envelop is illuminated from below, becoming an ethereal beacon, glimpsed between the forest of 'bamboo' columns, drawing spectators and audience in from across the lake and surrounding development".

Set to open in 2019, the Wuxi-based building will accommodate "The House of Dancing Water" a water show by Belgian stage director Franco Dragone.
