Dalian International Conference Center
The International Conference Center is located in Dalian, an important seaport, industrial, trade and tourism center, located in the southernmost part of the Liaodong Peninsula in the Chinese Liaoning Province. The project combines on overall 100,000 sqm a number of different functions within one hybrid building: a Conference Center, an Opera House, an Exhibition Center as well as a basement with parking, delivery and disposal. The architect describes the concept of the Dalian International Conference Center as “an idea to create a “small city” composed of conference- and performance-rooms under a single shell-like roof.

Conference Centre Reykjavik
The south facade of Harpa is inspired by the geological basalt stone formations along the Icelandic coast. The remaining two-dimensional facades and roof build on the geometry of the south facade. The glass captures the light of the sun and colours of the sky and appears as a giant, illuminating sculpture, reflecting the sky and harbour. The building changes colours depending on the weather and time of day and year. Art and architecture are beautifully united in the 29,000 m2 concert hall comprising four music and conference halls.
