The inauguration of the new Palacongressi di Rimini conference center by gmp
October 16, 2011

Palacongressi Rimini von Gerkan, Marg und PartnersThe new Palacongressi di Rimini conference center has been officially inaugurated. The center, which was designed by von Gerkan, Marg and Partners Architects (gmp), who had already designed the Rimini exhibition center, was completed in 2010.
The overall complex is made up of four distinct areas which contain large and small halls on two levels. The Palacongressi di Rimini picks up on the local pattern language – the colors of the wet and dry Adriatic beaches, the turquoise blue and greenish water of the Adriatic. The shape of the amphitheater reflects that of a “conchiglia” a local name for the seashell with a pearl at its center.
The conference center, which is the largest in Italy, follows an innovative concept in that it combines conferences with exhibitions; at the same time it is also an urban design pilot project for a cultural center which has been planned on the other side of the road and which includes a concert hall by Mario Botta.
The site of the former exhibition venue has been turned into a green central area with a lake that extends beneath the new bridge, along the extended park and links up with the city center.
