National Academy for the Performing Arts, Trinidad

The new National Academy for the Performing Arts building on the edge of the Queens Park Savannah in Port of Spain, stands out in the city as it is so very different to everything around it. It's all glass, and steel arcs, and a modern anomaly in this old style town.

Opening in November 2009, it features a performance hall, teaching room, practice halls, and reportedly a hotel for performing guests! Although I have been unable to find an official website for it, nor a list of performances for visitors to Port of Spain to see...this is one of the many world-wide structures around the world funded in part by Chinese government funding, through a "concessional loan".

An intriguing sight to see, I hope it grows to provide a place of Trini culture and learning, live performance and music....
