New Congress Center and Hotel Facilities

Year
2005

The competition entry for the new congress center and hotel facilities ties together the new sea-front and the urban fabric of Palma de Mallorca with its light structural composition. The project comprises the principal congress center, meeting rooms, exhibition spaces and a café. The waterside location suggests a transitional and liminal character for the entire complex, positioned between the two extremities of the local area: the compact uniformity found in the walls of the historic city center, and the fragmentation of more recent developments to the east of the project. Carrying a transparent and permeable character, the plan integrates all functional elements with pedestrian flows in the area and inserts public spaces next to the sea.
