The performance center, which will hold most of the 20,000 Expo performances during the six-month Expo, was the last of the five permanent Expo buildings to start construction when work began in December 2007. The other four are the China Pavilion, Theme Pavilion, Expo Center and Expo Boulevard. The 126,000-square meter center will be the largest comprehensive performance arena in China. It will have two floors underground and four above ground. The seating configuration of the main auditorium, which has a center stage, can be changed to accommodate 4,000, 8,000, 12,000 or 18,000 seats depending on the requirements of the performance and the audience size.
The dome structure of the main stadium was designed to be a both architectural and engineering marvel. Arched members are precisely arranged to create ringed assemblies which ascend to form the dome structure. These arched members are also configured to support the central and lateral pillars of the oblique structures. The dome is inherently stable against wind or seismic loads.
