Best International Commercial &Special Use Project

Judges Statement:

The Dai Show Theatre is a purpose built theatre located within Xishuangbanna International Resort. The theatre was designed, with inspiration from

the local culture and nature of Xishuangbanna. It is the home for Dai Show, a permanent acrobatic water show created by show producer Franco Dragone.

The structure of the theatre is inspired by the geometry of the local palm frond, folding in a manner which increases the structural rigidity and echoes the roofs of local

architecture. The golden roof is split into two tiers expressing the folding nature of palm fronds, it acts as a canopy for the open-air lobby and the structural openings

between the tiers allow for natural ventilation responding to Xishuangbanna’s subtropical climate.

The auditorium is arranged so that the audience is seated in the round stage. The main central stage has a performance basin containing a pool plug which can be

lower down to allow for a dramatic dive off the catwalk above. Water can flood the areas separately and fill the entire performance basin. The holistic approach to the

complete design has created an extraordinary theatre, where the worlds of architecture and set design have been coherently and magically united.
