DALIAN | International Conference Center | U/C

International Conference Center
Dalian, China. Under Construction (2008 - 2011).

Dalian is an important seaport, industrial, trade, and tourism center, located in the southernmost part of the Liaodong Peninsula in the Chinese
Liaoning Province. The city is currently undergoing a wave of transformation on coastal brownfield and reclaimed land which will entirely change
the city’s significance within the next decade.

The urbanistic task for the design of the Dalian International Conference Center is to create an instantly recognizable landmark of the above
mentioned urban development in Dalian. Situated at the terminal point of the future extension of the main city axis, the center will be anchored as
its focal point in the mental landscape of the international community.

The footprint of the building on the site is therefore arranged in accordance with the orientation of the two major urban axis which merge in front
of the building. The close surroundings are further differentiated with the conference spaces that penetrate the façades, cantilevering and thereby
creating a spatially multifaceted building volume. The various theaters and conference spaces are covered by a cone-shaped roof screen, whose
controlled daylight input assure good spatial orientation for the visitors and atmospheric variety.

Architectural Concept
The building has both to reflect the promising modern future of Dalian and its tradition as an important port, trade, industry and tourism city. The
formal language of our project is not pictographic, but associative; it will combine and merge the rational structure and organization of its modern
conference center typology with the floating spaces of traditional Asian architecture as well as with a design reminescent of the soft surfaces
generated by the forces of the sea.

The project combines the following functions within one hybrid building with synergetic effects of functionality and spatial richness.
  • Conference Center
  • Theater and Opera House
  • Exhibition Center
  • Parking, Delivery and Disposal

A public zone at ground level allows for differentiating accessibility for the different groups of users, with the shopping and exhibition facilities
directly connected to the conference center providing dramatic sight axis within the building. The actual performance and conference spaces are
situated at +15 m above the entrance hall. The grand theater, with a capacity of 1,600 seats and a stage tower, directly opposite of a flexible
conference hall for 2,500 seats, is positioned at the core in the center of the building.

With this arrangement the main stage can be used for the classical theater auditorium as well as for the flexible multipurpose hall. The main
auditorium is additionally equipped with backstage areas like in traditional theaters and opera houses. This scheme is appropriate to broaden the
range of options for the use of this space: from convention, musical, theater even up to classical opera, with very little additional investment. The
main auditorium has the option to get equipped with a flexible floor providing all possible utilization from banquet to parliamentary seating.

The smaller conference spaces are arranged like pearls around this core, providing very short connections between the different areas, thus saving
time while changing between the different units. Most conference rooms and the circulation areas have direct daylight from above. Read the rest

Really want to see how that bridge/sculpture over the water turns out, it's quite interesting.
