🇨🇳 Wuxi (无锡) is a city in southern Jiangsu province, eastern China, 135 km (84 mi) by car to the north-west of downtown Shanghai, between Changzhou and Suzhou. Wuxi is a prominent historical and cultural city of China, and has been a thriving economic centre since ancient times as a production as an export hub of rice, silk and textiles. In the last few decades it has emerged as a major producer of electrical motors, software, solar technology and bicycle parts. The city lies in the southern delta of the Yangtze River and on Lake Tai, which with its 48 islets is popular with tourists. Notable landmarks include Lihu Park, the Mt. Lingshan Grand Buddha Scenic Area and its 88-meter (289 ft)-tall Grand Buddha at Ling Shan statue, Xihui Park, Wuxi Zoo and Taihu Lake Amusement Park and the Wuxi Museum.

Wuxi is also a major city among the top 500 cities in the world by scientific research outputs, as tracked by the Nature Index and home to Jiangnan University, the only key national university of “Project 211” in the city. Wuxi also possesses one of the highest GDP per capita levels of any city in China.

History Clues are to be found at the Meili Museum and the Helv Relics Museum, Wuxi is the ancient capital of Wu State during the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BCE). Taibo and Zhongyong traveled south-east and settled in Wuxi Meili. There, Taibo and his followers set up the State of Wu, and made Wuxi as its founding capital which lasted for 600 years. The history of Wuxi can be traced back to Shang dynasty (1600–1046 BC). The tin industry thrived in the area in ancient times but it was eventually depleted, so that when Wuxi was established in 202 BCE during the Han dynasty, it was named "Wuxi" (the capital of WU state). Administratively, Wuxi became a district of Biling (later Changzhou) and only during the Yuan dynasty (1206–1368) did it become an independent prefecture. Wuxi and Changzhou are considered to be the birthplaces of modern industrialization in China.

Agriculture and the silk industry flourished in Wuxi and the town became a transportation hub under the early Tang Dynasty after the opening of the Grand Canal in 609. It became known as one of the biggest markets for rice in China.

The Donglin Academy, originally founded during the Song dynasty (960-1279) was restored in Wuxi in 1604. Not a school, it served as a public forum, advocating a Confucian orthodoxy and ethics. Many of its academicians were retired court officials or officials deposed in the 1590s due to factionalism.

As a populous county, its eastern part was separated and made into Jinkui county in 1724. Both Wuxi and Jinkui were utterly devastated by the Taiping Rebellion, which resulted in nearly 2/3 of their population being killed. The number of “able-bodied males” (ding, 丁) were only 72,053 and 138,008 individuals in 1865, versus 339,549 and 258,934 in 1830.

During the Qing dynasty (1636–1912), cotton and silk production flourished in Wuxi. Trade increased with the opening of ports to Shanghai in 1842, and Zhenjiang and Nanjing in 1858. Wuxi became a centre of the textile industry in China. Textile mills were built in 1894 and silk reeling establishments known as "filatures" were built in 1904. Wuxi was remained the regional centre for the waterborne transport of grain. The opening of the railways to Shanghai and to the cities of Zhenjiang and Nanjing to the north-west in 1908 further increased the exports of rice from the area. Jinkui xian merged into Wuxi County with the onset of the Republic in 1912. Many agricultural laborers and merchants moved to Shanghai in the late 19th century and early 20th century; some prospered in the new factories.

After World War II, Wuxi's importance as an economic centre diminished, but it remains a regional manufacturing hub. Tourism has increasingly become important. On April 23, 1949, Wuxi was divided into Wuxi City and Wuxi County, and it became a provincial city in 1953 when Jiangsu Province was founded. In March 1995, several administrative changes were made within Wuxi City and Wuxi County to accommodate for Wuxi New District, with the creation of 19 administrative villages such as Shuofang, Fangqian, Xin’an and Meicun. Jiangnan University was originally founded in 1902, before merging with two other colleges in 2001 to form the modern university.

These districts are sub-divided into 73 township-level divisions, including 59 towns and 24 subdistricts.

This location determines that Wuxi Grand Theater will become an important landmark building.

The 8 huge roofs of the building protrude far outside the wall like wings, making the theater look like a butterfly. The large roof is also conducive to blocking the heat of the sun. The architectural design concept is unique: inside the steel wings are thousands of LED lights. It is possible to change the color of the wings according to the characteristics of the show, thanks to the perforated aluminum plates that cover the underside of the wings to make this concept possible. Another special feature of the design concept of Wuxi Grand Theater is the "forest" formed by 50 pillars of light with a height of 9 meters. The pillars of light start from the square at the main entrance, support the roof of the central hall, and pass through the entrance along the lake side Extending to the lake, a feature with strong Chinese characteristics runs through the entire building: a large amount of bamboo, which is both a traditional Chinese material and a modern material, is used. Recently, some new bamboo manufacturing and usage methods have made it possible for the auditorium of the main theater to be wrapped by 15,000 solid bamboo blocks of different shapes determined according to acoustic needs and architectural images. Wuxi Grand Theater also adopted a Finnish The featured material is nearly 20,000 specially designed glass blocks on the curved wall of the theater audience hall along the lake side. Finnish nature, lakes and ice, were the inspiration for the architectural design.

The project won the China Steel Structure Gold Award; it was rated as the world's top ten best buildings and the world's top ten most anticipated buildings by the world's two authoritative media "The Times of England" and "CNN News".
