ARCHITECTURE

AsiaWorld-Expo, Hong Kong

AsiaWorld-Expo is an exhibition and entertainment facility near Hong Kong International Airport. The venue holds eight typical exhibition halls and two larger halls, one of which can be used for sports and entertainment events.

The design takes advantage of the horizontal form, the use of which is made necessary by aviation height restrictions. The long-span, aerodynamically-shaped metal roofs are inspired by the aviation context of the surroundings. Two linear concourses located between the exhibition halls facilitate convenient mobility, while the exhibition halls themselves are inherently flexible, allowing them to be subdivided in different ways for various events – meaning they can be held separately or concurrently through the continuous column-free space.

In order to minimise construction waste and to fast track the construction process, building and structural components were streamlined through off-site prefabrication.
