Thanks to the generous donation of the state of Qatar, Room XIX of the United Nations in Geneva has been completely renewed with the project of the PEIA architectural firm and, for the first time, an Italian architect designs and implements an important work for the United Nations. The capacity of the new Hall is 800 seats, with 320 seats and desks for the delegates, plus a same number of assistants, as well as observers and the press, making this Hall for Assemblies of 4000 sqm. The architectural design reflects the ideals of the United Nations through its concentric and radial circular design that exemplifies the concept of equality. Instead of large counters with different radius, a single and equal module of the desk is designed for each member to be aggregated to others, in order to promote individuality and identity of nations, and at the same time express the strength of the union as one body to solve together the world problems.
