Zhuhai International Convention Centre Phase 2

Zhuhai, China
Led by Gordon Affleck (Design Partner) and Miriam Auyeung (Chief Operating Officer), 10 Design has won an international competition against 9 other international design firms for the second phase of a world class Zhuhai International Convention and Exhibition Centre in China (Zhuhai CEC). This phase will provide an additional new convention space, supported by office and retail components totalling 273,000sqm.

Zhuhai CEC is strategically located at the Pearl Estuary with close proximity to Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macau. Located in the central core of the new Shizimen Central Business District, the overall development comprises an approximate GFA of 980,000sqm. When Phase 2 is completed, it will further catalyse economic development, positioning the wider Hengqin region as Southern China's primary financial centre.

This exciting win allows 10 Design to enforce the development's key concepts such as using public functions within the Urban Ribbon to link the city with the waterfront by framing and activating a grand public plaza while screening the more private functions of the convention and exhibition. The new convention component also extends the public space around the Urban Ribbon using a series of elevated terraces that form a number of layered courtyards and informal gardens, serving both public and convention facilities. Grand landscaped staircases link the terraces to an elevated plaza with views to the waterfront while creating covered connections between both the differing phases of the facility and between the city and the waterfront.
