The station's construction started on February 27, 2009. The ceiling, also the world's first single layer steel shell structure, looks like a delicate painting floating in the air. Using a next-generation material, ETFE Film (ethylene tetrafluoroethylene), was a perfect choice for roofing and facade construction, showing impressive strength and saving energy. The roofing is in three-layered ETFE cushions.
The visible structure of the station is of a tear-drop shaped dome surrounded in parklands. Beneath the futuristic Ground Floor waiting hall's domed structure, the majority of the station is located in 5 underground levels. The First & Second Basement Levels allows access to buses, taxis, public parking and ticket hall for the Tianjin Metro. The Third Basement Level houses the Tianjin Metro B2 and B3 lines.
