Congress, Exhibitions and Fairs Palace in the City of Cuenca
Competition. 2011 – 2nd Prize
The project for the Palace of Congresses, Exhibitions and Fairs of the City of Cuenca presents a double challenge. On the one hand, it reacts to a difficult site on the edge of the city, an answer should turn problems into opportunities, and allow to develop and enrich a proposal which respects the context. On the other hand, the complex and extensive program must have a clear organization that offers a suggestive, continuous and comprehensive picture, and yet builds the peculiarities of each of the uses of the program.
Thus, the first project decisions were taken in order to make a careful and respectful implementation with an environment of natural memory, worked by human hands, building a unitary element that identifies the institution with its deserved singularity.
