Architect's Newspaper reports on another building set to open this year catching ablaze, the Guangzhou Opera House, in Guangzhou, China designed by Zaha Hadid. In early February, during Chinese New Year celebrations, OMA's TVCC Building was nearly destroyed in a fire before it was able to open for business.

From the A/N blog:
"The project, designed by Zaha Hadid with a web-like exoskelton, includes an 1800 seat theater as well as a multipurpose hall and support facilities. The building was set to open this fall. A Chinese media outlet reports that blaze has been extinguished but that the extent of the damage has not been determined. A project architect is currently on site and a statement from Hadid’s office is expected shortly."
