With the Show Theatre, which has 1480-seat main hall and is constructed with an area of 21,500 square meters in Starry Islands, coming into use, the ‘twin conch’ of Oriental Movie Metropolis can be a perfect pair presented besides Ling hill bay of Tsingtao. There are one pair fantastic space spiral lines modelling "S" layout, accumulating anima and mutual reflecting. The GDF hopes to turn the intertextuality performing building as more elegant cultural halls and spiritual symbols of the coastal city . "Heart to the local nature and response to contemporary times" is the initial inspiration for the aesthetic creating of architectural form. Rooted in Eastern philosophy, the self-organizing system of building elevation, which involve the natural environmental perception, custom performance function and construction material shaping potential, perfectly represent the orderly and complexity elegance. The extremely abstract appearance model not only dispels the monoculture or function evaluation, but also endows the show theatre with more diversified decoding possibilities. Different perspectives vary, such as, the metaphor of the scarlet curtain that slowly opens the beginning of the circus, or the rolling drum sail that symbolizes the efforts of the coastal city to move forward, and even the etiquette civilization that working in concern with Shandong, where is the hometown of Confucius and Mencius. While walking past the building, people will be attracted to its soft glow. A lifting translucent glass curtain wall covers the grand lobby space. Daylight diffused through the white curtain wall, With the theme show of "Eight immortals crossing the sea" bring the audience into another kind of time and space. As if in the east China sea fairy field. The overall spatial narrative of the building and the context of the landscape are both dramatic.
