The Shanghai Grand Theatre is located at the intersection of People’s Boulevard and South Huangpi Rd. in northern part of the People’s Square in Huangpu District, Shanghai.
The building was designed by French architect Jean-Marie Charpentier and covers a floor area of 11,528 m² . Interior design was by Studios Architecture. It was opened in 1998.
With its unique style and beautiful outlook, the theatre has become a representative building in Shanghai, whose existence renders the People’s Square virtually the city’s center of politics and culture.
The Shanghai Grand Theatre has 10 storeys, two for underground, two for lofts and six on the ground. It looks like a crystal palace in the light at night as the white arc-shaped roof joins coherently with the light-sensitive glass curtain wall.
The lobby of Shanghai Grand Theatre is approximate 2,000 square meters with the white as its main tone, which signifies elegant and pure. A large chandelier, formed by six pan-pipes shaped lamp, is suspended in the lobby. The floor is made of a rare marble called “Greece Crystal White”. The patterns shaped like piano digital, together with the pillar and the stairs, are full of rhythms. While being inside, it’s really like staying in a musical world.
