CIUDAD JUÁREZ | Juárez Convention Center | App

Juárez Convention Center Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico

SOURCE: http://fr-ee.org/juarez-center/

Fernando Romero EnterprisE was commissioned by the government of Ciudad Juárez to design a Convention Center, located in the northeast of the site’s master plan. With its contemporary design, the convention center aims to serve as the instigator for the revitalization of the area. The building is the keystone to the vision: its volume, ellipsoidal form and metallic façade set the building apart, an icon to the future development and evolution of Ciudad Juárez.

The interior is designed to be as flexible as possible and will accommodate different exhibition and convention groups and their needs. The largest space, also serving as a concert hall, is designed for 5,000 people. All materials and architectural solutions in the building have achieved LEED Gold standards.

News about the city
Juárez is the former world's murder capital, with 3534 murders taken place only in 2010 by street gangs. In 2014, murders were 'only' 538: per capita, that number is comparable to New Orleans one. The change is due to the heavy security in the area of Ciudad Juárez. Now, the city is booming with projects and redevelopment and revitalize the society, also if it's still not like before all the killings and the drug war began. Also, the city government wants to bring tourists in the city.
Dreaming for an united federal country called Europe.
