Model

This is a large-scale convention and exhibition center that integrates cultural, commercial, and technological functions. It is a place for organizing summits, exhibitions, and transactions.

Structure

The architectural design of the Silk Road International Exhibition Center interprets and responds to the ancient city wall and urban texture of Xi'an with modern architectural vocabulary. The walls of the exhibition hall are made of natural stone, and the stone wall with its inclination adopts the formal language of the ancient city wall of Xi'an. Corresponding to the sturdy plinth is the light and streamlined roof design, with undulating and cascading curved roofs, evoking distant memories of the flowing sand dunes on the Silk Road.

The building of the hall stands out from the building of the exhibition hall. The extremely high gate reproduces the cultural symbol of the city gate. The facade allows visitors to locate the entrance from a distance. The staggered roof gradually overhangs, extending from indoor to outdoor, supported by huge cross columns. These columns are tapered towards the top.

Dlubal customer Huana Engineering Consulting (Beijing) Co., Ltd. was responsible for the facade structure design of this project. The civil engineers used RSTAB from Dlubal Software to develop, model, calculate, and design the facade.
