“The complex consists of three regular angular cubes and a tender roundish volume - the conference hall - between the first two. The designers wanted to compose an economical and innovative building. This idea appears in energy supply and in the applied forms. The concept was to create a protecting puffer zone with ventilated air space around the central shell, which is able to influence the temperature inside the building in every season. At the same time we tried to save space when designing building engineering. The pebble-like volume of the conference hall, which is covered with eosin-like glass mosaics, is inserted between the white metallic façades of the building.
