Scope and Content

The project series documents the competition entry for a convention centre and an international fair in León, Spain. The competition by invitation only was organised by the León Town Council. Abalos & Herreros finished second. The firm identified this project as number 191.

"Leon's Fair tries to give protagonism to old factories witch characterize the site making them up as principal access point and general services for the building, as well as creating a simple constructive space, similar to a tent. [...] Also the Congress Centre fill fair's core, the communication and leisure place with its small group of people's geometry. The project tries to compose these three pieces in a unique coherent group in its differences and resemblances, able to create a place with a clear sense: Leon’s Fair."

Documenting the project are presentation drawings, project descriptions, competition documents, cartographic, graphic and reference materials, correspondence, specifications and publications.
