Israel Trade Fair Center
Project Title
Israel Trade Fair Center
The master plan, proposed by Safdie, called for a new trade fair building, as well as a replacement of the existing Trade Fair Center and Congress Center Building. The program for the complex included various facilities such as exhibition spaces, showrooms, offices and conference areas, a 400 room hotel, a 3,600 seats cinema complex and parking for 4,000 cars. A crescent-shaped concourse forms the organizational spine of the design with the gently sweeping arched form, helping to enclose and define the landscaped Hayarkon Park, which embraces the project area. Major exhibition halls were located on the "outside" curve of the concourse, and the pedestrian circulation along the "inside" curve.
