Qatar National Convention Centre – Theatre Hall in Education City, Doha , Katar by Haver & Boecker

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Article source: Haver & Boecker

Modern design with functionality and sustainability

The ceilings and walls inside the Qatar National Convention Centre are clad with 6,000 m² of architectural wire mesh made by Haver & Boecker. To meet the exclusive requirements of the room’s ambience, the designers chose bronze wire mesh. The high-quality aesthetic of the architectural mesh, as well as the excellent long-life properties, non-flammability, easy maintenance and recyclability, made choosing Haver & Boecker wire mesh an easy decision for the client.

Miami Beach Convention Center in florida by OMA

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: OMA

Typically, as convention centers evolve their footprints expand. In Miami Beach—an island where every acre is precious and the only “periphery” is ocean—the convention center has claimed an entire precinct for asphalt. Since its initial construction in the 1950’s, the Miami Beach Convention Center has expanded twice, each time claiming more open space from the city and looming closer to its neighbors.

Article source: BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group

BIG together with West 8, Fentress, JPA and developers Portman CMC proposes Miami Beach Square as the centerpiece of their 52 acre Convention Center.

Miami Beach is a unique city in so many ways. It is one of the youngest cities in America – and perhaps right now one of the most vibrant and dynamic. Its street-scape is characterized by a lively walkable urban fabric with a friendly human scaled environment under the cool shade of tropical trees and art deco canopies – except at the convention center.

Sixty Colborne Presentation Centre in Toronto, Canada by Johnson Chou Inc.

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Article source: Johnson Chou Inc.

Sixty Colborne is a 3,300 SF condominium presentation centre comprised of a sales area and a model suite created for Freed Developments and located in the St. Lawrence historical district of downtown Toronto.

Design Concept:

To create a building of paradoxes much like it’s site: a building of simple form juxtaposed against a context of a cacophony of form, detail and colour; to create a building passive by day and active at night; direct access from exterior yet complex interior movement and parti.

Rouen Convention Center in France by Stéphane Bigoni & Antoine Mortemard

Friday, January 6th, 2012

Article source: Stéphane Bigoni & Antoine Mortemard

Located in the ancient commercial harbor, the project focuses on the extension of an old storage hangar between the railroad tracks and the Seine River, allowing it to house an auditorium and exhibit spaces. In the middle of the building, a large mashrabiya captures and diffracts light. At night, the lattice becomes a lantern, emerging from the floor beneath the hangar’s frame. The auditorium sits partially beneath the old hangar, a concrete structure independent of the existing building frame. The surprise lies at the end of the room, however, when the back wall of the stage opens, and the harbor is invited to join the conversation – to a greater or lesser degree, depending on the rotation of the vertical blinds.
