Guangzhou Opera House, currently under construction in China, was set ablaze on Saturday. The fire at the Zaha Hadid design overlooking the Pearl River is the second to hit significant modern buildings in China this year with OMA’s TVCC building devastated in February following a fireworks display.

The steel building frame of the building requires a significant amount of welding and it has been reported by local press that this is the suspected cause of the fire.
