This building has been specifically designed to host congresses and other similar events in a city that, to date, has had certain deficits offering spaces for this type of events. The new Palacio de Congresos de Catalunya will be located at the Northwest extreme of the city, next to the freeway to Tarragona and Lleida. The designed building will be located in a highly heterogeneous urban landscape, next to the spectacular Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I - designed by the same architects Ferrater and Cartañá - and their outdoor gardens, as well as a large number of sports facilities. The unique characteristics of this suburban context will determine some of the challenges that will have to be primarily faced throughout the project process.
