As part of the Shimizu Station East redevelopment zone, the Shizuoka Performing Arts Center is destined to become a new landmark on the developing Shimizu waterfront. Its glazed foyer faces the port and affords views of Mount Fuji in the distance. Surrounding the large and small auditoria inside, this highly transparent façade reflects the building’s open atmosphere and invites Shizuoka citizens and visitors alike to participate in a variety of planned programs.

The large concert hall is built using a traditional shoebox form, and seats 1,500; its multi-purpose design can also support shows and full-scale opera productions. The smaller 300-seat hall is intended for a variety of uses, from concerts to plays. The center will support a range of cultural activities by local residents as well as professional music and theater productions.
