Granada began to take its place on the international map in the conference sector in the 1980s. That was the reason why then mayor of the city, Antonio Jara, decided to create the Granada Conference Centre and thus initiate a stage of economic growth.
The large sculpture upon which the building is centred offers a triple functional use: a viewpoint towards the city, an access and entry staircase, and a connection between the park and the building. This form allows the important connection between the exterior and interior use of the building.
The large capacity rooms being connected with smaller rooms and the exhibition hall allow a vertical interior design, in which the majority of the rooms are located on different levels.
The main room, which can host 2,000 people, is located at the centre of the building with a semi-circular form to adapt to the geometry of the premises. The building also has soundproofing in order to isolate sounds, allowing events to be held simultaneously in the different spaces.
