Designed by AREP and MaP3 during a competition in 2007, the station is built on Land reclamation by the sea. The project is inspired by marina's landscape (seagulls, boat masts, cables[clarification needed]). The structure shape is obtained by moving and rotating identical frames: "arches" and roof beams, connected together by braced brackets and cables diagonals. Arches and beams are welded on a central beam, with a triangular box section, sheltering technical catwalk. The whole structure is fabricated with folded steel sheets. The roofing is made by aluminium plates interrupted by polycarbonate strips. The ceiling is made of aluminium blades.
The construction is handled by CSCEC, general contractor. The steel structure was fabricated in Nanjing.
