zaha hadid architects (ZHA) has won a competition to build the second phase of beijing’s international exhibition centre. located next to the chinese city’s international airport, the venue hosts conferences, trade fairs, and industry expos attended by delegates from across the globe. to accommodate future growth, a design competition was launched to expand the site’s exhibition space, enhancing the city’s position as a leading center of knowledge and international exchange.
ZHA’s design is arranged as a series of interconnecting lines and geometries that reference the textures of glazed tubular ceramic tile roofs found in traditional chinese architecture. this configuration also allows for integrated relationships between the exhibition halls, conference center, and hotel. finished with a copper color, the scheme incorporates large recessed windows that give further expression to the visually dynamic envelope.
this creates a series of shared courtyards and landscaped gardens intended for informal meetings and relaxation. cafés and outdoor public event spaces are also included as part of the plan.meanwhile, the movement of people, goods, and vehicles is divided into three separate routes to aid circulation, provide optimal adaptability, and avoid disruption to ongoing events.
04 轻量级大跨度结构 造就无柱灵活空间
建筑师设计了一个复合屋顶系统，确保室内环境不受外界干扰，还能提供最大限度的吸音降噪。屋顶的对称几何形状形成一个高效的轻量级大跨度结构，创造出大型无柱灵活空间，可快速适应各类展览及活动需求的变化。屋顶的规模、材质与流畅的建筑语言完美融合。模块化的制造和施工方法将使项目建设时间和运营成本最小化。The architects designed a composite roof system to insulate the interior environment and provide maximum sound absorption. ‘the roof’s symmetric geometries create an efficient lightweight large span structure to provide a column free flexible space that can quickly adapt to changes in exhibitions and nature of use; its industrial materiality and scale balanced with its fluid architectural language,’ ZHA explains. modular fabrication and construction methods will minimize the project’s construction time and operational costs.05 可持续发展 太阳能电池板+智能楼宇管理 项目中太阳能电池板阵列的运用利于收集可再生能源，而智能建筑管理系统的引入，则会根据需要调整建筑物的混合通风，通过高效暖通空调设备提供最舒适的自然通风，提高室内空气质量的同时，进一步减少电力消耗。雨水收集和中水回收将“反哺”花园和自然景观，同时还将应用可持续建筑技术最新成果以最低碳排放。
solar arrays will harvest renewable energy, while a smart building management system will adjust the building’s hybrid ventilation as required, ensuring optimum natural ventilation supported when necessary by high efficiency HVAC equipment to enhance indoor air quality and further reduce electricity demand. rainwater collection and grey water recycling will complement the extensive gardens and natural landscaping, while advancements in sustainable building technologies will target minimum embodied carbon and emissions.
