Situated amidst the undulating contours of the hilly region in Chittagong, the convention hall design takes inspiration from the natural landscape to create harmonious and integrated architecture. With a focus on seamlessly blending with the surrounding hills, this project aims to create a convention hall that not only serves its purpose but also celebrates the beauty of its location. With its unique concept of transparency towards nature and integration of planes, this project sets a new standard for architectural excellence. The design philosophy revolves around creating spaces that coexist with nature, enhancing the experience of both visitors and the environment. One of the standout features of this convention hall is the inclusion of a swimming pool within the design. This addition not only offers a refreshing amenity for guests but also serves as a focal point that enhances the visual appeal of the entire complex.
Transparency through full-length glass windows plays a crucial role in the design language. The convention hall incorporates large glass panels and open spaces, creating a visual connection between the interior and the exterior. This transparent approach not only maximizes the use of natural light but also offers uninterrupted views of the surrounding hills and lush greenery. It nurtures a sense of openness and freedom, inviting guests to engage with their natural surroundings while enjoying the events held within the hall. The play with planes is another striking element in the design, which skillfully influenced the different levels and angles within the convention hall, creating a dynamic and visually intriguing space. The interplay of planes provides an architectural rhythm that captivates visitors as they navigate through the complex. From multiple vantage points, guests can appreciate the interlocking layers of the structure, which form a unique visual experience at every turn.
