Baghdad Conference Palace

Baghdad Conference Palace or Baghdad convention center is a complex which was built in the 1980's in baghdad.

The complex is the seat for political conferences and cultural events, and is located in the heart of Baghdad overlooking Zawra Park.
The horizontal building mass is punctuated by a large assembly hail on one end and, on the other, by a volume containing the President's meeting hall, and a large and two small meeting halls. The central part of the building comprises an atrium and circulation space with a large sculpture, and serves as the main entrance and reception foyer. Small discussion rooms and lounges are located within the cylindrical volumes protruding from the principal building mass.

The blind fašades of the principal meeting halls contrast with those of the office, administrative, and reception areas where fair-face concrete sun screen panels are employed in a geometrical fashion.

Interior volumes are given individual character by the introduction of curved and moulded ceiling elements and finish details. The principal structural system is in-situ re-inforced concrete slab and frame; clear-span steel framing is used for the main hail and foyer. With the exception of the steel trusses, the structural materials are of local provenance; most finish materials were imported.

At the current time , the complex is mostly used by the Iraq parliament .

i've been here a few times. its quite nice by iraqi standards.
The UN made Iraq pay about $52M per kuwaiti civilian who died.

Iraq should treat Kuwait and the rest of the terrorist states with the same reciprocal demand for compensation for what they did to Iraq since 1991.

The interior looks nice, i can see future concerts going on here but it looks like a factory from the outside.
