The new City Convention-Performance Centre, located within the Municipal Government complex in Hai Phong, Vietnam, is set to become a vibrant and modern urban hub.
Invested by the Management board for urban development and civil works investment of Hai Phong this project aligns with the government’s resolution to relocate the city’s political-administrative centre to the new urban area in the North of Cam River by 2025.
Covering a total floor area of 49,500m² on a land plot of 12ha, the building stands 35m tall with three storeys and one basement level. Its undulating roof was inspired by the ripples of waves radiating away from the centre of a drop falling on a water surface, which perfectly harmonises with the architectural landscape of the new urban area in the North of Cam River.
Arup, in collaboration with gmp International Architects, provided structural, MEP and fire system design services to bring this unique building to life.
1,500-seat multi-purpose hall
Enhancing the city’s capabilities
The centre boasts a 1,500-seat main hall, a 500-seat multi-purpose hall, a round table meeting room and over 10 small meeting rooms that can accommodate between 20 and 100 people per room. With these state-of-the-art facilities, the centre is well-equipped to host national and international conferences, seminars and art performances by 2025.
Additionally, the centre features two entrances to the basement, four emergency stairs, a power station, a traffic system, an internal road yard, a parking lot and other infrastructure landscape.
Together with the groundbreaking of the new Political-Administrative Centre, the completion of the centre is expected to enhance the cityscape and support the socio-economic growth of the Northern region of Vietnam.
