Keeping a visual connection between coastline and city is achieved by designing main hall’s facades, which are parallel to the coastline, as transparent as possible. With this transparency, the events can be perceived from the outside. Using steel structure has chosen according to the needs of functions. The building’s architectural expression is generally achieved by expressing the structural system.
