Construction of a new congress center in Charelroi. The Palace of Congress is the Agora of Charleroi: it will host large political, commercial and societal encounters.

The project is conceived as an urban landscape enclosed within a permeable structural grid of columns. It provides a dynamic new public space which creates continuity between the existing Palaces of Exhibition and of the Beaux-Arts and the central square.
