2012 AIA Ohio Honor Award Winner
The Dragon City Exhibition Hall received a 2012 AIA Ohio Honor Award in the category of newly completed buildings. The Exhibition Hall is the cultural centerpiece of Elite Dragon City, a new town development in Wuqing (pronounced woo ching), southeast of Beijing. As seen from the main road and entry drive, the exhibition hall is a pure circle floating enigmatically on reflective waters. It gradually reveals its complexity and landscape integration as visitors rediscover it from the surrounding shopping village or arrive via small boats from remote parking. 2012 AIA Ohio Design Award winners have been profiled by AIArchitect HERE.
