New Exhibition and Convention Hall Cologne Trade Fair
Client: Koelnmesse GmbH, Cologne
1st prize, Competition 2015/2016
Under construction, completion 2024
The cubature of the Confex® fits harmoniously into the ensemble of existing trade fair buildings and, together with the new Hall 1 (also JSWD), forms the structural conclusion of the inner-city trade fair area towards the Rhine Park to the west.
The multifunctional new building is intended for events with up to 6,000 participants. A variable connection with other exhibition halls, especially with the neighboring Hall 1, enables a completely new spectrum of event formats for trade fairs, congresses and events. The offer of 22 conference rooms of different sizes also supports this.
The Confex® can also be operated self-sufficiently and accessed directly via the new west entrance.
The German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) has pre-certified the project with platinum. Among other things, photovoltaic elements on the entire roof area will contribute to the sustainable orientation of the building.
