international architectural firm coop himmelb(l)au have designed the ‘dalian international conference center’, china. the building consists of floating spaces and soft surfaces. its performance and conference spaces are situated at 15 meters above the entrance hall. the grand theater, with a capacity of 1.900 seats and stage tower, with a flexible conference hall for 2.500 directly opposite, is positioned at the core in the center of the building, while the smaller conference spaces are arranged like pearls around this core. public spaces such as shopping and exhibition areas are connected upstream to the conference center providing short connections and dramatic sight axis within the building. additionally the main auditorium is equipped with backstage areas like in traditional theaters and opera houses. all conference rooms and the circulation areas have direct daylight. the main entrance from the sea side corresponds already to the future developments like the connection to the future cruise terminal.
