Thanks for posting this one.
The first design is the most appealing IMO.

This city is "close" to Beijing and its population is above 2 million inhabitants. It is a large city after all.

Proposal C gives an impression that its taller than the other proposals. I am not sure which one is the best design. They are pretty good but the project has a long name.

It's about 150km southwest of Beijing, the capital of Hebei province. A medium sized city by Chinese standards, but still quite large nonetheless. You should improve on your Chinese geography . IMO after seeing the renders, I don't like any of the designs, but design A would be the "least bad".

I like the layout of C the most. The park is well connected with the convention center, the white building, and the tall tower. I can see that the public plaza and the park area can sometimes serve as an extension to the exhibition halls. Activities related to the exhibitions can be held here.

In the A design, the park is too isolated to one corner. In the B design, there is really no clear park areas and the tall tower seems cut off from the plaza due to the pools of water. The large pools in A and B don't really seem to serve important purposes since there is already a river nearby. The pools only take up usable spaces.

And I also like Plan C for the wave-like design of the convention center.

Glad to see that my home town is growning

Is this the only supertall, already built or otherwise, in ShiJiazhuang?

I like proposal c
I also like how China is not just copying western style buildings, but blending between classical Chinese architecture and modern design.

Woods Bagot won! 330m.

Woods Bagot designs abstract Exhibition and Convention Centre in North China

After competing against seven internationally acclaimed architectural firms, Woods Bagot have presented their winning masterplan and concept design for the Shijiazhuang International Exhibition and Convention Centre.

The culturally-focused mixed use precinct will serve to showcase Shijiazhuang as a global destination for conference delegates and tourists by re-activating the City’s underdeveloped coastal region. Whilst convention precincts in surrounding cities remain under-utilised, Woods Bagot’s design is expected to maximise the Chinese government’s generous investment with its emphasis on stimulating and revitalising 190,000 sq m of the local urban fabric. Woods Bagot are aiming to deliver a level of sustainability and design excellence in built form that will be fundamental to strengthening Shijiazhuang’s international profile.

Woods Bagot Beijing Principal Jean Weng said: “Woods Bagot has designed Shijiazhuang’s International Exhibition and Convention Centre to respond to, and engage with, the landscape and its plethora of visitors – forming a harmonious, balanced design response that is also visually arresting.”

Employing a filed pattern reminiscent of traditional Chinese ‘broken ice’ screens, the design language developed by Woods Bagot has been applied to the whole site – working across the grounds, moving outward to the tip’s river surrounds to create a randomly split, abstract appearance when viewed aerially. Tied together by a fully enclosed and air-conditioned concourse spine, the precinct facilities will comprise 100,000 sq m of premium grade international standard exhibition space, 60,000 sq m of high quality convention facilities (including a state-of-the-art plenary), and 30,000 sq m auxiliary spaces.

A landmark tower reaching upwards of 330m is conveniently located adjacent to the central Exhibition and Convention Centre on an independent 4ha of land. The tower will house a 5-star hotel, serviced apartments and premium grade office space.
