Franz Harary designs 'House of Magic’ in China in collaboration with Tim Delaney

Magician and illusionist Franz Harary announced that the “Franz Harary’s House of Magic," a $40-million attraction, will be permanently housed in the new “Studio City Macau,” a $3.2-billion hotel and casino resort complex located on the Cotai Strip in Macau, China.

“Designed by a magician, for magicians,” the new venue “Franz Harary’s House of Magic” was designed by Harary with art director Tim Delaney (the man behind Disneyland ’s “Tomorrowland”). It has a retro-tech, steam punk look and feel.

The venue will be comprised of four live performance theaters, namely: the “Illusion Laboratory,” where guests can interact with illusionary gadgets; the “Paris Opera House,” a French Nouveau style theater; a “Middle Earth”-style theatre, where guests will be transported to a forest right out of “The Hobbit;” and a “Future Tech” Mega Magic theater, with multimedia technologies.
