Located on the northern coast of the Iberian Peninsula, Oviedo is a city with a remarkable architectural heritage. This project consists of a conference and exhibition center, two office buildings, a five-star hotel, underground shopping center and parking garage. The Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos Ciudad de Oviedo was designed to provide the people of Oviedo with a strong, modern landmark that speaks to the projection of the city. This new conference and exhibition center will host congressional sessions in the building's main auditorium. There are also sixteen additional rooms for seminars, press briefs and conferences as well as approximately 3200 square metres of event hall and exhibition space.
The new conference and exhibition center was conceived as a singular, sculptural element located over a great concourse. It's elliptical shape, which is covered by a layer of glass and steel, was designed to aid in the building's acoustics and will provide maximum sound quality during concerts and other musical events. The main entrance of the conference and exhibition center is located at the north and is covered by the cantilever of steel ribs belonging to Calatrava's signature brise-soleil. This cantilevering roof and facade structure with operable elements will adjust the light inlet inside the building's main auditorium.
