Fuksas’ Nuvola conference centre completed in Rome
http://www.wantedinrome.com/news/fuk...leted-in-rome/



Rome’s so-called Nuvola conference centre set to open in October.
Construction work on the so-called Nuvola conference centre in Rome’s southern suburb of EUR has finally reached completion, after €236 million and 18 years of controversy.
Designed by prominent Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas, the giant complex will be opened by Italian premier Matteo Renzi on 29 October. The inauguration will be screened live on RAI 1, during which the centre’s official name will also be revealed.
Known so far as the Nuvola (Italian for cloud), the futuristic project has suffered from extensive delays and spiralling costs since it was approved officially in 1998, under the tenure of then mayor Francesco Rutelli.
The giant conference centre includes a 9,000-sqm plenary hall which can host 6,000 people, a 7,000-sqm forum area and an auditorium that can host around 1,800 people. Its design comprises 20,000 tons of steel and 58,000 sqm of glass.

The structure has already begun securing its first bookings, including an international delegation of lawyers in 2018, and Fuksas claims the centre will bring €350 million to Rome each year.
In 2014 the project came in for severe criticism from the authority for the supervision of public contracts (AVCP) over its “excessive slowness” and “disproportionate” sums paid out to artistic director Fuksas, who susbequently left that role.
The company that owns and manages the 27,000-sqm site is Eur Spa, whose majority shareholder is Italy’s ministry of finance.

The “Nuvola” by Massimiliano Fuksas
https://brusselsdiplomatic.com/2016/...iliano-fuksas/

After eight years of work at the new Convention Centre in Rome, the realization of the most controversial of Fuksas is finally concluded. Tuesday, July 19 took place the presentation of the work in the night: a tour through the 17 thousand tons of steel and 58 thousand meters of the structure of glass, with the spectacular play of lights.

The so-called ‘Nuvola’ is missing only a name, which will be chosen through a competition of ideas announced during the presentation to the press from the top of Eur Spa, who commissioned the work. The name will be revealed during a live Rai October 29, the date set for the official inauguration of the structure.

” It is not a building – emphasizes Enrico Pazzali, CEO Eur spa – but will generate wealth for Rome and the country, with significant employment and economic flows. A study by the chamber of commerce estimates that a congressman spends about 1,400 Euros in Congress and we, in 3-5 years, we can aim to accommodate between 200 and 300 thousand delegates a year, which means a potential impact on the territory between 300 and 400 million. Our goal is to internationalising Rome on by the congress tourism, on which we are deficient”.

Work began in 2008 and ended on June 30/2016, six months earlier than the last time schedule defined by the contruction company Condotte.

The giant building has cost about 273 million, and employed a steel amount “equal to almost 3 times the iron used in the Eiffel Tower,” said the Chairman of the Management Board of Condotte, Duccio Astaldi.

The result can be read in terms of space and size: with a volume of 281 thousand square meters the congress center can accommodate up to 8,000 people, including more than 6,000 in the conference rooms and 1,762 in the Auditorium “scenic heart of the project.”

Impossible not to be impressed by the imposing space, which is revealed to visitors in all its boldness, the skeleton of steel that shapes the cloud, wrapped in a special fiberglass cloth backing, the ceilings with exposed plants of the hall plenary, to the solidity of steel and glass case. The latter, 40 meters high, 70 wide and 175 long, which will house the auditorium, is lined by more than 4700 American cherry wood panels that will ensure high performance in terms of noise level.

Receptive function, finally, the so-called ‘Lama’, 55 m high, 126 m long and 14 m wide, inside which will place a hotel with 439 rooms, with underground parking for 600 cars.

just because it looks good in a render, doesn't mean it's going to look good in real life.
