Denton Corker Marshall has won a new commission to design a landmark development in the city of Ningbo. Positioned on an island precinct of Ningbo, a city near Shanghai, the Dongqianhu International Educational Forum Complex is a large-scale multi-functional development comprising convention centre, exhibition hall, hotel, market and tourist facilities. Denton Corker Marshall’s striking design, influenced by China’s rich culture and heritage, will provide an international waterside icon for the city. Reminiscent of the nine dancing dragons or the calligrapher’s brush stroke, the complex’s two ‘arms’ are composed of floating ribbon forms, twisting and turning along the lake setting. The exhibition hall for culture, art and education forms a ‘tail’ and ‘body’ to the dragons, while the convention centre rises up to form the head of the complex.
