National Centre for the Performing Arts is located in the heart of Beijing, neighboring the Great Hall of the People and Tian’anmen Square and covering 118.9 million square meters, and its total construction area is 217.5 million square meters, including nearly 46.6 million square meters underground garage. The NCPA, also known as the National Grand Theatre, is a surreal location in which to catch a show. Technically, it’s an ellipsoid dome of titanium and glass surrounded by an artificial lake and vast expanse of green space, but the Egg or Water drop building is much easier on the tongue.
