The total area of the project is only 1700 square meters, with a total of three floors, from the park square in the foreground, through the mirrored pool, into the building's entrance square, the foyer and multifunctional conference hall on the first floor, and the exhibition hall on the second floor. From the two wings of the building, ascending the stairs, the outdoor space on the third floor also corresponds to a large platform, which is the cafe and the book bar. The outdoor terrace offers relaxation, views and tea, while echoing the mountain park in the northwest corner. Through the outdoor steps to the roof terrace, increase the interest of the terrace space, forming a mountain park landscape echo.

According to the functional needs of the conference center, the height of the center is raised, the surrounding height is lowered and rounded, so that the building volume not only meets the requirements of the height of the conference hall, but also reduces the size of the building, thus reducing the occupation of the square area. Streamline treatment also reduces the building to people's line of sight blocking. At the same time, in order to meet the needs of smooth flow of people and traffic in the park, the construction volume was respectively handled by tunneling road paving and flying bridge, so as to speed up the evacuation of people and reduce the influence of the building on the square.

The shape and facade of the conference center are concise and convergent. The streamlined design of the facade makes the whole building lively, just like a foal eagle ready to spread its wings and fly. The open functional space with pleasant scale is covered by a complete top floor volume, creating a sharing space suitable for sitting and staying. The streamlined building skyline connects with the surrounding buildings naturally and integrates with the environment.

The facade materials are mainly metal aluminum plate, perforated metal plate and low-e glass. This kind of overall "without makeup" is introverted, and the selection of modern "trendy" building materials and the presentation of texture provide a more youthful and scientific sense of sharing space, and also well fit and express the content and atmosphere of "dake park".
