Exhibition Center Xi’an

The new Xi’an Fair consists of a total of seven exhibition halls. Four of these halls were realised in the first construction phase. The ground plan dimensions of the halls are 144 m x 72 m each. Two massive reinforced concrete masonry beams are arranged on each of the long sides of the buildings. The roof structure sits on these beams at a height of approx. 14.5 m, supported by short steel columns. The barrel-shaped steel roofs have a free span of 66 metres. The front sides are fully glazed.
