The Dalian Conference Center combines various different functions on a total floor area of 100,000 m² in a hybrid building, including a 7,000-capacity, state-of-the-art conference centre, a 1,800-seat opera and an exhibition centre. The free-formed main conference hall is the core of the DCC, envisaged as a reinforced-concrete shell. Six smaller, box-shaped conference halls of various sizes are arranged around the main conference hall.
The load-bearing structure of the Dalian International Conference Centre (DCC) comprises a horizontal and a cone-shaped spatial steel framework, which are mainly supported by 10 concrete cores. A sophisticated climate control concept, which, for instance, aims to utilise seawater for cooling, will achieve energy savings and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 30%.
