Korean architects Chiasmus Partners have converted a former factory into a dance centre and theatre in the Dongcheng district of Bejing, China. The project, named Red Diamond, involved covering the exterior of the existing building with a faceted shell made of evenly-spaced steel tubing. Elements of the original building such as the front door remain in place. The area in front of the main building is to be used as an open-air performance space. A separate white, box-like structure accommodates a bar and seating overlooking this courtyard. Spaces in the main building include a performance hall and practice studio.
