With nearly 20 conference halls and the ability to accommodate 1,500 people, the China Railway Qingdao World Expo City Conference Center, funded by the state-owned railroad and designed by Tengyuan Design, is literally big enough to drive a train through, and you can see that by this images.
In the center’s ceramic-tiled lobby, fiberglass-reinforced gypsum board is CNC-cut into an abstract school of fish surrounding a column and then swirls upward, in solid form, to the ceiling, and outward, to wrap the staircase enclosure. There, porthole-like openings are fitted with the transparent vinyl film.
This building was inspired by the nearby Yellow Sea, one that troughs before cresting again at the adjoining Westin hotel, itself 300,000 square feet and also designed by Tengyuan Design.
“We hoped for a destination that is, in terms of scale and technology, far ahead of anything else in Northeast Asia,” general manager Zhao Guangjun says.
