由OPEN建筑事务所设计的深圳坪山大剧院作为唯一来自中国及亚洲地区的项目获得2023年英国Civic Trust Awards区域入围奖. 此前，OPEN的清华大学海洋中心获得了2018年英国Civic Trust Awards大奖。
Pingshan Performing Arts Center, designed by OPEN Architecture, was selected as the only project from China and Asia for the UK 2023 Civic Trust Awards Regional Finalist. Prior to that, OPEN's Tsinghua Ocean Center was awarded the Winner of 2018 Civic Trust Awards.
The Civic Trust Awards成立于1959年，旨在表彰建筑环境中的杰出建筑、规划和设计。除了优秀的设计，获奖项目还应该表现出强大的可持续发展能力，高水平的无障碍和通用设计，同时提供积极的公民贡献。
The Civic Trust Awards scheme was established in 1959 to recognize outstanding architecture, planning and design in the built environment. The Civic Trust Awards is not just about rewarding architecture or design excellence. We strongly believe that successful projects should also exhibit strong sustainability credentials, a high level of accessible and universal design, whilst also demonstrating how the project has provided a positive civic contribution.
Pingshan Performing Arts Center, as a representative work of OPEN's six cultural projects, is included in "Reinventing Cultural Architecture: A Radical Vision by OPEN", published by Rizzoli. The book has been launched in Europe and North America in September 2022 and is being distributed worldwide.
OPEN新作 | 戏剧方盒——深圳坪山大剧院
In tandem with China’s economic boom and rapid urbanization, theaters have sprung up throughout the country in the past decade. Most have extravagant exteriors, but are often spatially monotonous and far detached from the general public and everyday urban life, greatly underutilizing the tremendous public resources invested in them. After winning a competition to design the first theater in Pingshan, a new district in the municipality of Shenzhen, OPEN had the opportunity to take a critical look at the past development of theaters in China, and to explore new possibilities for the future.

In breaking away from the mono-function Cultural Landmark typology, the building not only becomes much more sustainable in daily operation, but also sets a new example of social inclusivity for civic buildings. Serving as a new cultural hub, it also provides the non-theater-going public with an exceptional and unusual urban space.

Flanking the grand theater is a variety of smaller functional spaces accessible both by a separate circulation system inside the building and through an outdoor meandering public promenade — so they can be conveniently used by the general public even when the grand theater is closed. Blurring the boundary of the building and city, the promenade links together a café, a black box theater, teaching spaces, rehearsal rooms, informal outdoor theater, and outdoor gardens on different levels.
