Set within a crystalline aluminum shell on a harsh tundra, the Grand Theater of China's Harbin Opera House (2009–2015) by MAD Architects provides an organic contrast to its exterior. Meant to evoke a block of naturally eroded wood, the space is lined in Manchurian ash, a move that enhances the acoustics of the space, while also supporting the local artisan community.
