Architectural Masterpieces that Make Perfect Event Venues
7 Nov 2022
Both business and personal events are back on track, with statistics indicating that around 88% of companies are once again organizing in-person events. The wedding industry is also booming, with the wedding services industry valued at some $57.9 billion as of 2022. Events organizers are once again looking abroad, with events and wedding travel also having picked up significantly since the start of 2022. If you are planning an event on a grand scale and budget is no option, consider the following amazing venues.
The ArcelorMittal Orbit in London, England
Imagine celebrating a company event or wedding reception at 114.5 meters high, while you and your guests enjoy staggering 360º panoramic views of the London skyline? It’s possible at the ArcelorMittal Orbit, designed by Sir Anish Kapoor and Cecil Belmond, two contemporary masters of art and design. Their aim was to create a “sculpture” that celebrated the energy of the City. Its looped structure reflects the dynamism, artistry, and innovation of a city that has given life to some of the world’s most beautiful architectural wonders. The ArcelorMittal Orbit is ensconced in the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, where the 2012 London Olympics took place. The building has two viewing platforms (lower or higher) which you can hire for events throughout the year. The building has the world’s longest tunnels slide, which can make a thrilling start to your event.
The Ribbon Chapel in Hiroshima, Japan
This is arguably the ideal marriage venue for die-hard romantics. The Ribbon Chapel in Hiroshima, designed by Hiroshi Nakamura and NAP, has entwined spiral staircases that symbolize the union of two human beings in the act of marriage. The couple to be married goes separately up the stairs and meets at the top for a private moment, before vowing eternal love before their guests. Of course, the summit of this chapel is an ideal engagement spot as well. If you have already decided on your engagement ring from the myriad of styles available, this is the perfect spot to pull it out. They say that diamonds are an ideal best friend, but colored gemstones, eternity rings, and delicate pavés will all shine brilliantly as the sun falls over a site that has a uniquely graceful, gentle, and loving energy.
The Chicago Cultural Center’s Preston Bradley Hall in Chicago, the U.S.
If classic romanticism or architecture is your thing, and you are holding a big event for up to 700 people, take a look at the Chicago Cultural Center’s Preston Bradley Hall. It looks over Millennium Park and boasts the world’s largest Tiffany glass dome. Within these hallowed halls, the Mayor of Chicago has welcomed presidents, royalty, and important world leaders. It was designed by Boston architectural firm, Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge, and completed in 1897.
Events and weddings are back and those with a budget for it are keen to travel to different cities, both within their countries and beyond. Just a few iconic venues to consider are the ArcelorMittal Orbit, the Ribbon Chapel, and Preston Bradley Hall. If the latter’s impressive Tiffany dome excites you, consider that it shines above ornate white Carrara marble carvings that take your breath away!
