Daqing City is famous for China’s largest oil city, and it is located in the northern alpine zone, which has great geographical features. In this case we try to breakthrough the traditional traffic building mode, and give the passenger building some cultural connotations. So the shape of building is from the ice and snow culture, and considered Northeast snowy landform features, white shapes post and down like winter hill standing above the earth, which have beautiful profile. The details of the building facade form like branch with steel structure, so enrich the level of the facade and also strengthen the design concept. The interior space of passenger transportation highlights the open and transparent feelings, with a three-storey hall, which linked the function of each space, providing a good flow line and great view.

The passenger transportation building is made mainly with steel structure, and set some of the concrete structure. The steel structure is the way to achieve the complex facade shape and large-span roof. And the steel structure combine with concrete structure to support the formation of a stable structural system.
