Building resulting after obtaining first prize in an ideas competition. He development proposal includes three pavilions with an area for open-air expositions, an auditorium, various multi-purpose rooms, offices, a café, and a restaurant.
Primary volumetric lay-out set along a linear, supporting axis, on a triangular plot of land. The so called red volume´, a projecting horizontal prismatic construction, which contains the catering area (café and restaurant) and the Fair Ground Tower, serve as urban icons and advertising hubs for the project.
The collaboration with the designers Javier Machimbarrena (interior of the building and furnishings) and Santos Bregaña (signage) lent talent and creativity, enabling us to ultimately create an image that was more consistent, controlled, and with greater attention to detail. First prize in the Ideas Competition (1998).
