Exhibition and cultural center Fair quarter refurbishing
The project establishes a new relationship between the fair and the city, opening up its precincts and redesigning its outdoor spaces by the addition of new elements.
The existing industrial buildings are unified by a large brick screen which contains distribution and services; a steel mesh fence substitutes the existing wall toward the street, and a new overhanging canopy protects the entrance to the complex.
The reform of internal and external distribution allows a very flexible and varied use of the spaces. A large hall for expositions and events, a cafeteria, a small conference room and a space for temporary exhibitions carved in the upper existing vault can work together and separately in relationship to the wide range of cultural or exposition events.
