Beijing Opera House

At the request of the architect Paul Andreu and the AdPI, the CSTB participated in guaranteeing the acoustic quality of the three halls of the National Grand Theater in Beijing, thanks to its simulation tools EPIDAURE and EBINAUR (which have since been replaced by the ICARE software package) in the preliminary design phase. Apart from the spatial organization and soundproofing aspects, the CSTB also gave advice on the choice of interior decoration elements and spectator seating. The CSTB then monitored the works and conducted a series of tests to ensure the actual acoustic quality of the performance hall.
