RMJM won the competition for the iconic Zhuhai Convention and Exhibition Complex with a design that tries to encapsulate the characteristics that make the city so unique: its relationship to its landscape, waterfront and romantic tradition.
The new Zhuhai Convention and Exhibition Complex is a key element of the development of the wider Shizimen Business District in Zhuhai. It consists of a business and exhibition cluster of 550,000m2 in the northern part of the district, that comprises an international convention centre, exhibition centre, Class A office building, two 5-star hotels, business apartments and supporting facilities split into two sites and to build in two phases.
The design concept for the convention centre is driven by the “city of romance” moniker for the city, and the connection of the site to the water. As such it has been designed as a sensuous ribbon that wraps around both open and enclosed space at the water’s edge, including key elements of the development such as meeting areas and landscape features.
