Kengo Kuma & Associates won the 1st prize for the international competition to design the new Exhibition center (PEX) of Strasbourg in collaboration with OTE (general engineering), Elioth (facade engineering), Egis Concept (sustainability), Lucigny Talhouet & Associes (quantity surveying), 8’18’’ (lighting design) and l’Autobus Imperial (signage).

The privileged location of the Exhibition Park in the North of this European Capital gives us the opportunity to create a new representative image for the city. The project named “Lisières” = “Edge of the forest” is composed of wooden vertical elements, both filtering and structural. The system supports the expanded and natural ventilated roof covering the Halls and gives to the project a unique and sober identity that echoes its environment.
