Namjagbarwa Peak is the highest mountain in Nyingchi Prefecture, Tibet. It ranks 16th among the highest mountains above the sea level with an elevation of 7782 meters.
The most mysterious thing is that at each end of the Himalayas two peaks stand on the mysterious tectonic knots: at the eastern end stands Namjagbarwa (7,782 meters), the world’s 15th highest peak, and at the western end Nanga Parbat (8,125 meters), the world’s ninth highest peak. Namcha Barwa is in an isolated part of southeastern Tibet rarely visited by outsiders. It stands inside the Great Bend of the Yarlung Tsangpo River as the river enters its notable gorge across the Himalaya, emerging as the Dihang and becoming the Brahmaputra. Namcha Barwa’s sister peak Gyala Peri 7,294 metres rises across the gorge 22 km to the NNW.
In Tibetan, Namjagbarwa means a “long lance piercing into the sky.” The sky-scraping Namjagbarwa Peak, with its majestic appearance, precipitous shape and unpredictable climate, has been an ambitious aim of mountain-climbing organizations from various countries, and was only conquered recently by a Sino-Japanese climbing team in 1992.
Xinghai Concert Hall is the concert hall in Guangzhou, and plays host to the cities most prestigious events from music shows to opera.
Named after a well-known Chinese composer, Xinghai Concert Hall is taken as the best concert venue in Guangzhou. The modern concert is divided into Symphony Performing Hall, Chamber Music Hall, Recording Room, Material Room and Intro to Instruments. Located at the riverside of Ersha Island, Xinghai Concert Hall, Guangdong Arts Center and Guangdong Huaqiao Museum formed a large-scaled cultural center in Guangzhou.
The symphony performing Hall was designed on the basis of natural sound, using reinforced concrete shell of hyperbolic paraboloids to cover the “Mountain valley-Terraced fields” seats so that the surfaces of these two parts directly form a “sound field”. The architectural structural space is a acoustics one. The hard interior surface of the reinforced concrete shell and the sidewall of the parquet seat areas serve as the interface of the reflection and diffusion of the music sound. In addition, a spheric diffuser hung above the performing stage improves the mutually heard condition on the performing stage and reinforces the early reflected sound for the front seat areas.
