The National Taichung Theater is not just a building that houses the opera. The entire architecture itself is an opera. One can feel the flow of air, sound and light not only in the foyer, but within the restaurant, sky garden and everywhere else in the building. One feels overwhelmed by the grandeur of a cosmic brilliance coming out of the architecture.

--Toyo Ito, Architect
