Palacio de Congresos de Zaragoza
Designed by the architects Nieto and Sobejana, the building traces a broken, variable (rising and falling) profile, in a dialogue with the various spaces housed within and expressively showing the presence of natural light and the building’s encounter with the terrain. It has two main areas which houses exhibition galleries and an auditorium respectively. In turn, a large common vestibule connects them to each other.

The auditorium, with room for a total audience of 1,500 people, has been designed with the purpose of making the stalls independent of the mezzanine, giving rise to two areas that host smaller conferences. The exhibition area, because of its emplacement, offers independent access, enabling it to be used for several exhibitions at once. A set of modular rooms laid out over levels complete the public building. The brightness and clarity that predominates in the building’s image during the day has their counterpoint at night, when the Conference Palace appears as a solid lightscape emerging from the ground.
