Katowice New Congress Hall
Katowice - second prize
The new congress hall for Katowice has many roles to play. It will have to be clearly recognisable as a important public building for the city, and should at the same time not obstruct the landmark role of its counter player and city's iconic building - The Spodek, or the position of other new future buildings like the proposed concert hall and the interventions north of the site. But most of all, it will have to play the central role in restructuring the existing empty spaces in the north-eastern part of the heart of the city.
