Qingdao Aoshan Bay International Exhibition Center
The facility's design goes beyond the traditional expo paradigm, which focuses on main-event spaces at the expense of public areas between halls, to create a facility that is multi-purpose and usable year round. The architectural concept takes cues from a butterfly, with the sinuous forms invoking wings that open to the community. The project includes indoor/outdoor spaces, an event hall seating 6,000 people, 26 meeting rooms and a grand ballroom.
