Tongling Convention Center - Tongling, Anhui, China
LLG prepared the design for a new convention center in one of the city’s new districts, north of town overlooking a lake. The site and architectural solution led to the development of a high rise hotel overlooking a major plaza, a conference center organized around a traditional Chinese water garden, three major convention halls capable of either dividing or combining for flexibility in tenant usage. A major site event plaza included a bridge over an arterial street to a park across the boulevard which fronts on the lake. To commemorate the long history of copper mining, the plaza was named "Copper Plaza" and used elements of copper in the design.
