The plot is 7500 sqm, the maximum permitted occupancy is 70% and the area suitability for building is 7,500 m2 above ground. In the plot is planned to find archaeological remains to be integrated into the project.

The project:

We intend to create a building to distinguish the City of Punta Umbria from others of similar size in the environment that contain similar facilities for fairs, exhibits, congress and shows.

The project is organized around two main ideas:

From a programmatic point of view, we believe that Fairs and Exhibitions Pavilions samples becomes an inert, almost residual, in the hours and periods without activities. Therefore, we articulate the project around a plaza as a stimulus and an urban object, which may give the area more life regardless of the timing of the activities it contains.
