We know what you’re thinking. In 2020, that’s an ominous location marker. But given the rising cure rate of COVID-19 with plasma treatments and global efforts, one could return to this beautiful country by the end of the year. The radical building maven that is China hasn’t stopped anyway—just take a look at the slick new Wuxi Show Theatre. Inspired by China’s largest bamboo forest, its steel columns and canopy of latticed louvres surround a core of 2,000 seats. Visitors will be able to watch Belgian director Franco Dragone’s show, The House of Dancing Water, here all year. Since the theatre is being developed as a shimmering centrepiece for Wuxi—it’s part of a larger cultural development—you’re also likely to get easy access to nearby Lake Tai. The freshwater reservoir has islands with revered Daoist and Buddhist sites, calming walking trails and a 115-metre-high ferris wheel. Stroll by the Show Theatre at night, and watch it awaken in golden light.
