Conference Hall, Tripoli

Name of Project:

Conference Hall, Tripoli


O.D.A.C. - Organisation for Development of Administration Centres

Total value:
€285 million

Start of works:
March 2010

Expected duration:
36 months

The new Conference Hall will be built in the west of Tripoli along the coast, between the new Central Business District and the landscaped Green Belt which will surround the Libyan capital.
The project, designed by the architect Zaha Hadid, will involve the construction of a Conference Hall composed of three halls (A - B - C), with a respective capacity of 3,500, 1,500 and 500 people, in addition to public areas, cafes and restaurants, areas designated for administrative activities, covered parking areas and areas for technological centres.
Hall A is a large-scale structure dedicated to use for conferences, while halls B and C are multipurpose.
Hall B can be converted from a theatre with seating on raised stalls into a hall with flat floors; the hall is directly connected to the main foyer area or a VIP area on the lower floor through mechanically adjusting flooring platforms.
Hall C is geometrically and acoustically designed to accommodate a vast range of cultural and artistic events: theatre, concerts, conferences and music.
A unique “dome” roof encloses the large theatres, a grand atrium, the public entertainment and circulation areas, and a large open restaurant on the upper floor.
