The Performing Arts have the unique ability to transcend language and to be universally understood. The Ballet Opera House, the Ford Centre for the Performing Arts, Orlando Center for the Performing Arts, Shenzen Cultural Center and AT&T are buildings that exemplify the way dance, music and theatre can be interpreted with geometric spaces that engage the notions of light, transparency, opaqueness and shadow. The fluidity of the architectural volumes harmonizes eloquently with the interpretation of various arts performed within.
