The International Conference Centre in Katowice is a modern, multi-functional facility with an exhibition and conference character. The building is located in the vicinity of the "Spodek" sports and entertainment hall, the Silesian Museum and the Philharmonic, as part of the Katowice "Culture Zone".
The assumption of the project was to integrate the new building into the urban space, among other large-scale facilities. The body of the building is a simple, rectangular edifice, which has been cut in two by the irregularly shaped rift. The resulting green valley, covered with grass, recreates the historical course of the road to Bogucice. The roofs descending to the ground create an entirely new public space. The facade of the building is glazed, from the outside it is covered with black, openwork mesh made of cut sheet metal; its colour brings to mind the coalmining past of the area.
