The Exhibit Center is based on a deserted land to the south of Huludao, it is built to re-establish the relationship between the cultural activities and it’s natural environment.
The main volume of the building is a floating box with floor to ceiling glass curtain on the south side maximizing the panoramic view. The cast-in-place concrete stair-cube, which links the three levels of circulation, also functions as the structural support for the cantilever. It bluntly penetrates the floating box with a 25-degree inclination.
The building as a whole is a result of the clear deduction and programatic-volumetric combination. Through this speculation, META-Project tries to demonstrate how to catalyze spatial complexity based upon a simplified dynamics, and how to address concerns for the public in a commercial-based project.
