On one side of the cape stands aseagull spreading its wings, ready to soar to the end of the sea. Facing the tide of the development of the Free Trade Port, Haikou, as the capital cityof Hainan Province, will re-examine its direction and position itself in the construction and development of the Free Trade Port with the goal of becoming aglobal pilot and a national pioneer.
There are precious memories about the course of urban economic development here, and forward-looking exhibitions will therefore become a portal connecting the world. By virtue of the advantages of Hainan Free Trade Port,Hainan International Convention and Exhibition Center (Phase II) will be an importantcarrier for Hainan to contact national-level exhibitions and promote the development of convention and exhibition industry as well as off shore trade.
Hainan Island has always been one of theportals for Chinas economic and cultural exchanges with foreign countries. Inhistory, both the large-scale population migration to Southeast Asia and thefact that it is an important fulcrum of the maritime silk road aretelling the stories of Hainan Islands communication with the world.
海南国际会展中心二期位于海口市秀英区，北接琼州海峡，南邻挺秀公园，距海口市政府1.2KM，总建筑面积198613㎡。Hainan International Conventionand Exhibition Center (Phase II) is located in Xiuying District, Haikou, adjacent to Qiongzhou Straitin the north and Tingxiu Park in the south.It is 1.2km away from Haikou Municipal Government, with a total construction area of 198,613m2.
At the beginning, facing the design problems such as regional conditions andland restrictions, the coordination of first-phase and second-phase venues, theem bedding of large buildings into small urban space and the display of Hainan culture, the design team took integration as the core, and finally achieved the mutual coordination of venues in both phases, the integration ofconstruction sites and urban space, and the combination of local culture and architectural functions.
Hainan Island is the second largest island in China and surrounded by the sea, and the design team has there fore taken marine elements as the starting point. While continuing the originaldesign concept of the architectural ocean, they wanted to resist the hotclimate in Hainan and created a people-oriented public place. Hence thebuilding should be elegant and not bulky in appearance.
The design team abstracted the building,which faces the green axis of the city, into an elegant and light seagull flying above the sea, implying that Hainan will take off again in the new erawith the help of new policies.
The mysterious sea world can be seenthrough the cross structural grid of the internal hyperbolic saddle surface.The sunlight shining into the quiet venue is of different colors as if it isrefracted by a prism.
The areas separated by the seashare the same sky depicts the unique scenery of the island. In terms oflandscape design, the team maintained the cultural characteristics of theisland and created a garden landscape with marine theme based on green beltsand blue trails.
When designing the ground, the teaminnovatively adopted colored asphalt, which is both functional and beautiful asit not only avoids the damage of large and heavy equipment to the ground, butalso combines the colored ground with marine culture.
Smart and elegant
-Form and Structure
The seagull cannot spread its wings with heavy body. Under the severe challenge of short construction period, structural designers have simplified the complex structural space of the exhibition. Inorder to meet the use requirements of convention and exhibition space, they accurately reduced the span and length of the bracket of the conference center,freeing up more architectural space.
The length ofbrackets on both sides of the exhibition hall was changed from 9m to 3m, and the height was reduced from 5m to 3m. The structure meets the functional requirements of the convention and exhibition center and the requirements of architectural aesthetics.
One integrated mass
Phase II of Hainan International Convention and Exhibition Center is a stylized exhibition building, and its building volume and shape are free and stretch. As an EPC design contractor, it needs to integrate multiple challenges such as design, construction and operation, so as to restore the original intention and highlights of the exhibition center to the maximum extent, at the same time,allow the owner to maximize the effectiveness of the later operation.
EPC is the core of the Phase II of Hainan International Convention and Exhibition Center, which displays the designers overall planning and control of the project in the whole process design. They effectively connected the construction of the main design and eachsub item design, systematically solved the problems of interface and cooperation in the process, and successfully achieve the design and construction objectives.
In the exhibition center project, thereare many special designs, including metal roofs, steel structures, curtainwalls, landscapes, lightings, signs, prefabricated buildings, etc, The mainproblem solved in the whole construction process of the project is the coordination and cooperation between the main contractor of the design and itspartners, which sets a high standard for professional knowledge, technicalteam, project operation, etc.
Spread Wings and Soar
During the 14th fiveyear plan period, Hainan will promote the transformation of the exhibition industry to a new development mode of aggregation, sharing andcross-border integration, and focus on the integrated development ofefficient agriculture with tropical characteristics with three leading industries including tourism, modern service and advanced technology, hoping tocultivate a number of professional conference and exhibition brands with industrial influence.
So far, Hainan International Conventionand Exhibition Center has successfully held well-known exhibitions at home andabroad, such as China International Consumer Products Expo, the pressconference of China International Trademark and Brand Festival, China International Health Industry Expo, and China International Sporting GoodsShow, etc. After the completion of Hainan International Convention and Exhibition Center (Phase II), it has fully improved the operation and exhibition efficiency of the convention and exhibition industry in Hainan,providing a stage for display and promotion for the construction of the FreeTrade Port.
