Futurism in Changsha, China

The future is a time after the present. It has been becoming a topic of religion, philosophy, and science. The futurism in art began to be popular in the twentieth century where the medium of art such as painting, theater, sculpture, music, poetry, architecture, and gastronomy were being explored. Futurism was then expanded to cover other artistic coverage and finally included industrial textile, design, and architecture.

In Changsha, China, there appeared an ambitious cultural complex introduced by Zaha Hadid Architects, an international architecture and design firm from London. It brought a new concept of building which put the concern more on extreme sinuous curves that radiate from each of the three independent structures and hooks them to a pedestrianized landscape, forming what they hope to be a global destination for theater and art.
