Conference Center Reconstruction Second Prize Winning Proposal / PPMS Arquitetos Associados

The design by PPMS Arquitetos Associados involves the existing building with a circular translucent skin, made of ultra resistance concrete slabs, a material capable of thermally protecting the construction from the heat prevailing in the region. More images and architects’ description after the break.
