international practice gmp architekten has just won the competition to build the new national convention and exhibition center in tianjin, the third in china of such international importance. the one-storey structure takes up a total area of 1.2 million square meters built in two almost identical phases that include a central entry hall covered by metal frame tree-like canopies and eight exhibition halls on either side of 12,500 square meters each. in total, the project will occupy 1.2 million square meters of space next to the tianjin avenue highway and the shoreline of the river haihe, with 400,000 square meters allocated for exhibitions. the pitched shed-typology roofs allow indirect natural light to penetrate through to the various gardens, courtyards, walkways and restaurants creating a comfortable environment. around the perimeter of the central program a congress center, hotels, administrative offices and exterior display areas mark the perimeter of the site.
