ICT – Centro Nacional de Congreso y Convenciones de Costa Rica

San José, Costa Rica

This 15,000-square-meter facility will be the country’s first convention center and a vivid example of Costa Rica’s commitment to sustainability. Visitors approach the building – integrated seamlessly into lush rainforest-like surroundings – through a series of landscaped veils that sequentially reveal the architecture. A dramatic sculptured fabric ceiling delicately caps the whole interior, a nine-meter-tall glass wall allows the pre-function area to feel enveloped by the garden space, and conference rooms within the garden immerse visitors in the natural beauty that this convention center’s sustainable scope seeks to honor and protect.
