Pavilion Z

Pavilion Z’s reconstruction and extension were designed to retain the building’s original shape, while incorporating three enlarging blocks seamlessly. The architects drew inspiration from the plant motif and bonsai breeding, removing individual period deposits and random layers to expose the steel skeleton. The project’s central theme was multifunctionality, crucial for the Exhibition Centre’s revival. The main hall is designed as a highly variable space that can adapt to various event challenges, from an exhibition hall to a congress or theatre hall to a ballroom or concert hall. Minimalist polished concrete flooring adds to the project’s versatility. The entrance hall and main multifunctional area flow freely into two additional halls on the upper floor, which can be variably divided.
