CUHK-SZ was entrusted by the city authorities to build Shenzhen Conservatory of Music at the end of 2018. The music school will be operated by CUHK-SZ during its early stage.
Shenzhen Conservatory of Music’s independent buildings are expected to be put into use in 2024.
The project, covering 73,800 square meters, with a floor area of 129,700 square meters, is one of the city’s 10 new cultural facilities.
Design for the conservatory was unveiled this January. The core design contents include classrooms, practice studios, a library, dormitories, performance auditoriums (including a 700-seat A-level competition theater, a 500-seat music hall and a 200-seat rehearsal hall), and science research space (including a music technology center, music management center and music therapy center).
Shenzhen has taken the worldwide lead in cultural facility construction in 2020, according to a cultural infrastructure index report recently released by AEA Consulting, a global cultural consulting firm.
The 10 new iconic landmarks to be completed in five years, with a total budget of 110.2 billion yuan (US$17.03 billion), means that Shenzhen will achieve the status as a major new cultural capital.
