The project lies in the birthland of this characteristic town - Yunqi Town, Hangzhou. To actively embrace imagination, a once unfinished industrial park has now become a technology hub of cloud computing, big-data and artificial intelligence. The ‘Yunqi Conference’ held in autumn every year has become the largest scientific and technological fiesta. Oddly, the conference was held outdoors several years in a roll simply because of the ‘impropriety’ of available venues. Of course, by no means does ‘impropriety’ suggest those venues were inferior in terms of size or grade, it’s just that the conference founders didn’t want people’s imagination to be constrained by a venue. Therefore, as the designers of the exhibition center, we tended not to follow past experience or the ‘desire to go big’. We want to make breakthroughs from its origin instead of constructing another generic exhibition center.
